Default Good CO2 System?

I have a 55 gallon planted tank, and I've been using DIY CO2 for a while and I'm getting tired of it... I just want to get a decent system that doesn't require too much work. I also don't have a decent LFS near me that carry any sort of CO2 system so it'd have to be from an online source. The main reason I want one is to keep my algae down, I have some anubias in the tank that just grow tons of brown algae on the leaves and it's really unsightly, they used to look really good, not sure exactly what happened...



55 Gallon tank, 2x 54 Watt Aquaticlife T5's, Eco-Complete substrate, Dosing with Excel, Iron, Potassium, Comprehensive, and Trace.

I've been very pleased with my Aquatek. It's certainly not the best, but for the money I don't think it can be beat. Look at the 90 in my sig for link, I'm on the phone, lol.

I had a 55g tank a long time ago, Get your self a good co2 regulator 2 stage ,
I had a AM1000 co2 reactor with a mag 5 that work great for my tank and use a 5lb co2 tank but you should get a 10lb if you can.
