good luck pal. My 20L is still in its packaging. FYI I am going with a 2213, I had a lead on a 2217 that fell through in the last minute. After more reading the 2213 will work fine since its a shallow tank. Im going paintball co2 with a nice reg that I have already chosen.

I am curious how you progress since im at the same stage as you. Hope I didnt thread jack you. Good luck

I ended up with a nice Milwaukee and a custom valve with the bubble counter attached from someone on here for a pretty good price

Figured I'd like it more than the aquatek because I'm able to adjust the psi a little better. Aquatek was close second though!

I just got a Milwaukee and I am digging it so far. Let us know how that light works out for you. I can't seem to find one I am super happy with.

I'm just going to do a standard EI dosing method with the usuals which can be found on Tom Barr's forum.

What filter do you have?

And hmmm maybe I'll try just the one then. I've heard 1 bag and a small 3 L will give you plenty to work with
