CO2 Regulator

Hello,

I am looking to get the pressurized CO2, thinking to build a regulator and I might be able to save some money. I am getting confused that which regulator to choose and where to buy. I see some victor, Airgas, Air Products, Matheson regulators on (no ebay links allowed) I am not sure which one is dual stage or single stage.

Please help me to choose a dual stage regulator.
If you have one or any resources where i can get one would work for me.

Thanks

GLA (one of the sponsors) is a good place to start. You can see what is available and the type of kits. I personally am leaning toward a solenoid regulator/valve combination. That way, I can use my Neptune Apex controller coupled with my pH probe to regulate my set-up. From experience, you get what you pay for; I have learned in this hobby (and SW/Reef setups), you'll pay in the long run.
