Best fully setup CO2 kit?


What is the best fully setup CO2 kit that I can get and go without much hassle? I am looking for around $200.

Thanks!

I saw ADA has a few different regulators for sale that should fit whatever, and you can get a good c02 tank off of e-bay, also, bettatail is who sold me a very very nice set up.

I am not at home so I can't check my browsing history but when I get there I will let you know where I saw these, I was kicking myself in the butt because of how slick and inexpensive they are. It was advertised on a standard co2 tank. Had regulator and valve with 1/4" nipple coming out for tubing.

Found it! Lol, it is GLA green leaf aquariums, http://greenleafaquariums.com/co2-regulators.html.

Specifically check out the bottom atomic co2 regulator v3 it fits a standard CGA-320 fitting (co2 cylinder).

You may also want to try around the forums; there are several users including myself that sell CO2 setups...

Do you have any links or details on the CO2 setup that you are selling?

You should definitely consider sourcing from the forum for the quality you will get, I got mine from bettatail , I got a chrome concoa regulator and fitting for less than $200 I was really happy.

I also recommend refillable CO2 tanks rather than disposable. Cheaper and more environmentally friendly.

Exactly, normally just take your tank in for exchange every time.
I ask for a better looking one because you can see my tank.
