Hey, STAT, where'd you get that tank? I'll be putting my system together this summer.

LOL. Actually, it's kinda funny how I wound up getting it for that cheap. GCA (GulfCoastAquarian) had bought the exact same kind of tank at a welding supply store near him in Mississippi and had seen another one just like it at the store. So he very graciously offered to go pick it up for me if I sent him the money. I did and when he went to buy it, the guy said that he had accidentally sold GCA an aluminum tank for the price of a cheaper steel tank. :lol: But just having about $45 that I'd sent him, GCA said that he could only buy that tank with that much money, so the welding supply guy honored the incorrect price again! LOL. So I wound up a very happy guy who got a literal steal (OK, well almost) on a 5 lb. aluminum CO2 tank.

Here in the D.C. Maryland burbs we go to Roberts Oxygen. I got a 20 pound tank for $90 and refills are $23 including tax. I got the 20 lb tank cause the 10 lb tank cost $80 and $19 to refill it. So by comparison the 20 is a bargain.

90 gallon tank with water and some fish. Plants died and tank overrun with algae. Lights nearly burst into flames last weekend. Needs lots of help

Look for a fire extinguisher shop. Most of them will fill on-site with no waiting and are cheaper than welding shops.
