    Hello Alan,

    I'm a planted tank/aquarium newb and have decided that I want to go the CO2 route. After doing more research I have come to find out that the last thing I want to cheap out on is a regulator. That being said, how much do you typically charge for a build?

    I have a 75G tank and am buying a refurbished 10lb tank from a local welding store. If there's a thread or something like that where you've gone over the finer details, could you link it for me please? I can't seem to find anything on the site.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi Alan,

    I've been following your thread in the shadows. Your work is admirable. I am finally ready to pull the trigger on a high end CO2 regulator/system. How much would you charge?

    Alan, I just bought a dual stage reg from you. I thought I put in a good word for you but see no record of it. Tell me the best way to give you positive feedback.

    Hey Alan,

    Looks like you're from my old stomping grounds down in the Bay Area
    I'm researching options for a regulator for my first
    go at injecting Co2. Been keeping marine and freshwater tanks for many years, recently been doing the Walstad thing, ready to move on.

    My tank is 39 gallons, looking at a 5lb Co2 tank.
    I want something simple and reliable, but you can let me know what you recommend.
    I can be reached here obviously if you preferre, but also at

    Any help, info, insight appreciated.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Alan, you seem to be the go to person for custom CO2 regulators. I was possibly interested in having one built for me. I have a 40 gallon breeder but may be upgrading to a slightly larger tank in the next few months. I already have a 5 lb CO2 cylinder. My regulator went to crap within a year, but I guess I get what I pay for. I was curious what is a rough cost of having you put one together for me that would work with a pH monitor? Also, just the basic details of how it works, payments, timing to complete a project, ect. From the post below it seems like you stay pretty busy so I appreciate you taking the time with helping me with this.
