Best fully setup CO2 kit?

What is the best fully setup CO2 kit that I can get and go without much hassle? I am looking for around $200.

Thanks!

I saw ADA has a few different regulators for sale that should fit whatever, and you can get a good c02 tank off of e-bay, also, bettatail is who sold me a very very nice set up.

I am not at home so I can't check my browsing history but when I get there I will let you know where I saw these, I was kicking myself in the butt because of how slick and inexpensive they are. It was advertised on a standard co2 tank. Had regulator and valve with 1/4" nipple coming out for tubing.

Found it! Lol, it is GLA green leaf aquariums, http://greenleafaquariums.com/co2-regulators.html.

Specifically check out the bottom atomic co2 regulator v3 it fits a standard CGA-320 fitting (co2 cylinder).

You may also want to try around the forums; there are several users including myself that sell CO2 setups...

You should definitely consider sourcing from the forum for the quality you will get, I got mine from bettatail , I got a chrome concoa regulator and fitting for less than $200 I was really happy.

I also recommend refillable CO2 tanks rather than disposable. Cheaper and more environmentally friendly.

Exactly, normally just take your tank in for exchange every time.
I ask for a better looking one because you can see my tank.
