thanks hbosman
the ref has a tiny little brass one but that adjust the amount of co2 going into the tank. Yes the knob is the one on top of the cylinder it self. I have it turnned mid way on. The tiny one on the reg is just barely turnned on and my drop checker went into the green a cpl of hrs after the co2 came on and has stayed green all day.

here you go the tiny little brass knob to the right in the pic is how Im adjusting the amount of co2 going into the tank. There are no other screws or knobs I could adjust.

Yeah, it's an Aquatek, which has a preset working pressure. No worries. As long as you can use the needle valve to get the CO2 to a point you're happy with, you're fine.

FYI most regulators have a variable working pressure, and that flat circular section at the very front would have some type of knob or screw.
