This is what I have now for my co2 setup...
Milwaukee Regulator with bubble counter
5# CO2 Aluminum Tank
And I am leaning towards a Rex Riggs Reactor (easy to build and inexpensive to make)
Sounds like a good plan. The otto's are pretty sensative. You need to be darn sure your tank is cycled and there is plenty for the otto's to eat.
