Hi,
No I usually leave an inch or two from the top for bubbles to accumulate and dissipate...

I leave some room for bleeding but only for the first week or two. After that, I like to keep the liquid level as close to the top of the res as possible.

Hi,
Inlet from the top might create some bubbles but not from the bottom same as the outlet.

I have always filled as close to the top as I dare without over filling.

but wont that creat bubbles?
Depends on how deep the vortex goes. You'll generally hear it if it is.

Personally I like to have a lower level so i can see water movement and have a quick and easy indication of positive flow.

There is no reason not fill it all the way if you prefer but I would leave a slight air pocket maybe above where you can see to absorb pressure changes in the loop.

There should be no issue with bubble formation as the return line should be connected to a bottom port or if its a top port it should be fitted with a drop tube to stop any fluid above the res from draining into it, potentially causing an overflow.
