Pressurized Co2

Can someone show me how they handle their co2 in hi-tech nano tanks. Pictures and links to where I can buy things would be great, I don't know much about pressurized co2 in general so I can take all the help I can get

to be perfectly honest, I'd rather have it a little bit cheaper only because of the fact that this tank is going to be moving around a lot
And also because I am a college student and I still need to focus on my main tank at home that is in a bit of disarray lol

The only thing that is annoying with this setup is the needle valve. If you replaced it with something better it would be perfect. I can live with this though on a grad school budget, it was my only option.

20oz-24oz Paintball C02 canister $15-$25
Co2 Resistant tubing
Check valve
Bubble counter
Diffuser
Drop checker (with dkh solution )
