aluminum. steel is a real PITA to try and polish and ends up still looking dull. but it can be done. stainless steel is a total different story depending on its grade

Thanks, that's one awesome pimped-out cylinder you got there. Stick a nice shiny two stage reg on it and it'll be a shame to hide in a cabinet.

Lol! My brother and I where just trying to do the same thing to my 5lbs tank! We where using some 500 grit sandpaper and then 800 grit. We then used polish for aluminum wheels. It doesn't look near as shiny as your though. It is funny that you did this right when I was! haha!

U have to get the grooves out first. its allllllllllllllllllll about a smooth surface with aluminum. i cannot stress that enough
aluminum is very pitted

wheel polish stinks,, its for light scratches only and removing oxidation

u need rouge and a good buffing wheel

Interesting! I've never heard of the stuff. Looks like it's used more often for saltwater setups. Nice and cheap, too! I may give it a try next time I need biomedia.

I think 3 weeks is a little fast to be burning through 5 lbs of gas. My 5 lbs last at least 3 months on my 33 gallon planted tank. I would double check for a leak. I had one once where the regulator screws into the cylinder.
