CO2 components

I would like to setup a CO2 canister system for my tank. Can someone provide a list of needed components?

This is where I bought mine but by all means shop around.

this one has everything you need on it.. bubble counter/checkvalve.

Co2 resistant hosing.

A 5lb Co2 tank you can find at your local Brew making store, fire safety supply, welding supply.... shop around, prices vary drastically. I got a used tank from a fire safety supply for $40 and a welding supply wanted $90

You will finally need a reactor or diffuser. You can make your own or buy one.

Optional, Ph monitor. A automated Co2 controller runs when Ph goes above desired parameter.
