Tank Going Online!!!

After many months of patiently waiting for my plants to come in, my HC carpet to come in, my lights, my CO2, my ferts, the last piece is in place. I got my 10 lb CO2 tank today. It's like Christmas, only without the pain of the airport. I'm giddy.

Funny how it takes so long to gather all of the right stuff. I've also been patiently waiting to get all of the pieces together in order to get started. I was all ready to buy new plants, start up my co2, and then my GBR's decided to spawn.

Can't wait to see what your tank looks like.

Boooo. I'm having issues setting up my CO2. Anyone know how to Macguyver the regulator nut? I don't have the right wrench for it. My super isn't around so I can't get into the maintenance closet. Hell, I even tried to pick the lock on the maintenance closet (the keys are not well made). Also, while we're on the subject, someone want to explain how to use the bubble counter and the needle valve? I'm not sure which barb on the needle valve comes from the regulator and which one should go to the reactor. I'm also not sure how to adjust it. I have a Fabco NV55. Should I use something special in the bubble counter, or is water fine? (I have heard glycerine and mineral oil, but I'm anxious to just get it set up right now. Also, how do you fill the bubble counter? I have a check valve on each side of the bubble counter.
