Thank you for the quick response Darkblade!

I will continue using a glass diffuser and see how it goes.

I had a question regarding a reactor, are these necessary? Because I didn't see you mentioned anything about them in your post and almost everyone seems to have them..

I'm still not sure what you are asking.

Just put the regulator onto the CO2 cylinder (you can see the threaded part). Then follow the instructions as I have outlined in this thread.

The needle valve should be open when opening the main CO2 cylinder valve.

wbwks Thank you so much, for a newbie to pressurized C02 this was invaluable to me. I have used DIY years ago and resuming my interest in planted aquariums again. This time I didn't skimp on my tank.

D90 Just an update. I had the regulator repaired. Hp and lp seat assemblies needed to be replaced. It's now in like new condition or "certified rebuilt". My co2 system is all set up now. Thanks again for the help!
