I think it's actually detritus. There might not be a lot of fish, but plants, algae, and microorganisms can all contribute to detritus.

The nipple I bought was CGA320 CO-3 one. I don't know if the washer is plastic or not, I got them free from the welding store. They are black, hard, flat, and grainy. No obvious scratches on the nut,...

Good news, the leak is gone. At least, I can't here it anymore. I will use a solution to make sure it isn't leaking at all.




So I did all of this, and the left gauge stayed the same, but the...

I've done it all the way and then some. It helped a little. The gas I think is coming from the hole in the nut for the nipple.

Yes, this is the first time I opened of the tank valve. The gas seems to actually be coming from around the nut. Bad washer?

So, I opened up the valve and gas started escaping from the regulator audibly and feel-ably. I'm going to get pipe dope and see if that works, in the mean time... DSM for now.

I don't think it's fair to judge ADA prices based on the US ones when they can be upwards of 150% of the cost in Japan. And please, "$15 worth of LEDs" is a drastic exaggeration.
