Yo yo,

I'm going pressurized co2 next week.

Is there any specific diameter tubing that I will need to connect to the needle valve, or will my hagen tubing suffice?

If I need special tubing, where's a good source to score some?

First off, Congrats !

Standard size aquarium tubing is what most regs (and attached bubble counters) are designed to fit. I think it is 1/8" inside diameter :?.....maybe 1/16" . You might want to invest in a length of Tygon tubing if you intend to run a long line to your reactor. Otherwise, the silicon tubing should be ok. You can buy Tygon for about a buck a foot at many online vendors......or, just PM me if you think you'll need it . Maybe we can work out a trade.

Yo unirdna,

Thanks for the advice.

I think I should be all set, but I'll definitely give you a holler if I'm all out.

BTW Madison's awesome.

Ever Been to the Suko Tai (restaurant)?
