If you're looking for a larger tank, something like 2.5# or larger, you could look into purchasing from one of the local AirGas shops. I got my 5# tank filled there for $10-11.


Thanks, just let me know when you get around it.

I am just looking at a 24oz paint ball tank right now, cause I just got a paint ball setup from Jaggedfury. I think the biggest tank I can use with that setup is 24oz. Let me know if I'm wrong. Thanks!

Happy Chinese New Year, if anyone cares

Will do Justin. I should be back up in Cleveland for a weekend towards the end of the month. I will be sure to have a drive around at that time to see if I can find the places I am thinking of. A google search hasn't turned up anything yet, which is extremely surprising.

24oz is the largest readily available tank size from what I know. They may make larger HPA tanks, but you would not want one of those anyway.

Lastly, depending on your willingness, you may want to check some of the online paintball vendors for their tank prices. Oftentimes, their prices are better (even when factoring in shipping) than anything locally.

Haha, I am actually in Cinci right now. Drove down here from Cleveland yesterday, and it was BBBBAD up there. Drove at 40-50mph for 2 hours!! Then there was rain in Columbus, luckily nothing crazy around Cinci. But now we are getting some of that weather here.. oh well~

Anyway, I will also look around online. It seems like it's easier to get a hold on the 20oz tank. But if possible, I will opt for the 24oz one. A 20% extra is pretty nice and probably last 20% longer between refills. Will there be any POTENTIAL problem with a paint ball tank? I just don't wanna ship it back if there could be problems with it. Hopefully, when I get back to Cleveland, the paintball setup will be there waiting for me

So right now, we have,
Pinnacle Woods - 24oz tank for $30, $5 refill
Best paintball supply - 20oz tank for $24, free 1st time refill
Amazon - 20oz tank for $16-ish shipped
ebay - 24oz tank for 31-ish shipped

Honestly, I say your best option is to get 2 20oz tanks from Best paintball supply. That option provides you with the most ounces of CO2 per $. It also makes it nice, because when one of your 20oz tanks runs low, just swap to the other one. Then you get the low tank refilled at your leisure, rather than having to possibly change around your scheduel to get the tank filled.

Sure, it is a bit more expensive at first, but not much more than the Pinnacle Woods deal you listed, and you get the benefits I mentioned above.

How long would a 24oz paintball tank lay on a 40 gallon? Say at 3-5 bps? Thanks ohioans

I don't have any direct experience, but if I had to give it a shot based on what I know about otehr CO2 setups, I would imagine that a 24 oz tank would give 3 months, possibly 4, at the rate that you are running it.

Honestly, at anything greater than a 29gal, my personal preferance is to use a 5# cylinder or larger. They tend to cost less to fill overall, and don't need to be filled as much. The initial investment is higher, but I think it is worth it.

However, if I had the choice again, I probably would go with a paintball setup on my 10gal. The 5# behemoth sitting in my stand takes up more room than I like. There is also the fact that it is cheaper overall, which is appealing as well.

I know that GLA sells manifolds: http://www.greenleafaquariums.com/co...splitters.html

Also, you ma want to give McMasterCarr a look. They are a industrial parts supply company that seem to carry everything under the sun. I really love these guys. They have a warehouse in Solon, which means I get items the same day that I order them most of the time! Link: http://www.mcmaster.com/#manifolds/=avbxqk

Depends on what you're trying to do exactly. If you give me a description of what the setup is, I can help you figure out what you'd probably need.

This is the current setup
What I want to do is just use a manifold to supply co2 to the tank right next to it
