HybridHerp I hate to bump this, but after realizing how much shipping is on a 20lb tank, I'd love to see if I can get one somewhere on long island. I'd rather put the $20+ in shipping towards plants or fish. I'm sure there's somewhere that I can go to right?

HybridHerp If he can just give me the tank that'd be swell. I don't need the regulator since I just bought one.

derp, didn't notice that lol. I'm sure that wherever I go to refill it I'd have to drive, so weight isn't that seemingly terrible of a thing, especially if I can go longer inbetween refills.

Question as well..........do you ever need to get a new co2 tank or are they prety much good for years and years?

HybridHerp My folks want to see if we can find a tank in person, so anyone have any suggestions as to where I can go? Besides, I'd love to know how big a 20lb tank is, so I can figure out where exactly I'm putting this rig :P

If you pump correctly it will last at least 1 year or even more.

JoraaŃ of course it works, some of my friends got their from that site.
12-20-2012 04:45 PM
HybridHerp ^hey, Joraan, from that link you posted, do you think that the reconditioned 20lb steel tank would work fine for our purposes? Cause that seems to be the best bang for the buck (the new aluminum is $100).

JoraaŃ Buy tube in home depot and get tank from here
