CO2 Kit recommendation

Good afternoon,
I am new in the hobby and i have a 10G aquarium for plants and shrimps.
Currently i am using Flourish Excel for my plants but i know is not a CO2 substitute.
I want to buy a good CO2 kit for the tank but be able to use it in a larger tank in the future.
I dont want to go in a DIY way since i dont want to have large bottles because my wife freak out.

I was looking the Fluval but all reviews are bad on those kits. Can some one recommend me a good kit in the
75$-125$ range ?

If you have no plans on getting a bigger tank then get the Aquatek mini regulator and get a 24oz Paintball tank. The mini regulator is set up for connecting to a paintball tank. This should land you in the $125 price range. If you plan on getting a bigger tank in the future then this setup is too small.

I spent under $100 for a Milwaukee MA957. I have it hooked up to a 2.5g CO2 tank. I’ve been using it for 2 years now and I’m really happy about it.
Recently I splitted the output into two needle valves. So far it’s working the way it should.
