|DrakeScree||I was able to pick up a 35 gram replacement tank from a off name brand for about $10 from Petco. It's not too bad.|

The co2 I have now requires me do dose the co2 myself every day
But if $150 is the entry point for something that will dose on its own, I think I'm stuck with the linked product.
I read the sticky the other day. Id rather something not DIY if the price is only slightly more.

|Yankee||I'm not sure what you mean by "automatic CO2"... You mean a regulator with solenoid? Get an aquatek regulator w/ cool touch solenoid and a 5lb CO2 tank (~$120). You can get a timer for it to become "automatic" and you can replace the needle valve and add a bubble counter for about $50 more. I've replaced my needle valve just recently and it honestly rivals the higher end dual stage regulator I have. See the equipment sticky to get some ideas on how to build an autodoser - I honestly don't do it because I enjoy the routine and it reminds me to hand feed my fish and give them a little attention in the morning.|

Q: cheapest automatic Co2 and auto doser
What is a inexpensive automatic Co2 and automatic fertility doser that I could use in a 12g tank?
Currently I dose by hand once or twice a week with liquid ferts and have the cheap Fluval co2 diffuser (large piece of plastic) .
