you can get one at dick's sporting goods, sports authority, walmart, or amazon.com. i'd recommend getting one on amazon since its the largest tank for the money. as far as getting it filled dick's and sports authority can fill them. for the 9oz bottle i have it was only $2.50.

thanks guys I tried to buy a tank and get it filled at dicks today but apparently you can get high off co2 now because you have to be 18 to get it filled. Ended up just buying an empty 20oz tank from walmart, was cheaper then dicks anyway. So im gonna go back to get it filled later with my mom and they still Id me (16 to buy empty tank) just for an empty tank haha what can I possibly do to harm myself or others with an empty tank?

Its a lot of liability. They'll make you or your mom saying you wont do any stupid stuff with the tank like put it in an oven or something. You're lucky my Walmart only carried 9oz.

Just set it up but unfortunately I also managed to uproot my newly planted plants and drop my light in. So the water is cloudy again. Light will be fine its leds (still stayed on in the water!) and I took it all apart and sprayed with contact cleaner to dry out all of the water. Needle valve is leaking a little but the store ran out of co2 so they only filled the tank a little and ill have to go back for my free fill anyway. So not gonna mess with it until then.

Clearing up so ill prob post some pics later today. My java moss was all dead so I just took all of the driftwood out of the tank and moved the java ferns to the front. Waiting on my old mr aqua 17.4 converted reef to sell so might set up a moss tank then. Also trimmed the rotala a little and will most likely end up roaking that. Might trim the tank a bit more but gonna let everything root first.
