New C02 setup leak?

I just setup my new CO2. there is a leak after the bubble counter. Its so tight I cant close or open it. But after the bubble counter, there is no bubbles coming to the tank. Can everything leak from one small opening without anything left for it to come to the tank? I even set it high as 10bubbles/sec

Are you using pressurized CO2? What kind of bubble counter do you have?

If you have one of the JBJ style bubble counters, make sure you have the O-rings seated properly.

Yeah... the original direction of the o-ring it came with was wrong... Just thought of reversing and it worked well..
