Small co2 setups?

I am interested in setting up a few paintball co2 injection canisters for my smaller tanks. Are there are other alterantives to the red sea regulators which cost as much as the full size setups?

No, not really...not that I know of, anyways. I've recently learned of a Hydor mini-canister system, but it's big only in the UK.

I think Rex made a few custom setups, but the price tag was ~$200 IIRC.

Just a thought

Hi

Do you already have a CO2 setup for a larger aquarium? If so you might want to look at this link for a gang opperation. (there are others also)

If the tanks are close enough to work this out finacially then it is another option instead of on complete setup for each tank.

Just a thought...

Enjoy!

The only paint ball regulator I have heard of is the red sea one.
I don't know why you would want an alternative. It is a great regulator...

Its as expensive or more than a regular unit. I need several of these, and cannot afford to pay that much for a paintball setup.

Thank you all for your responses!

Do you have access to a basement, attic or crawl space?
