Co2 Regulator

I want to get into adding C02 in my tank and I don't want to spend a fortune. The Green Leaf Aquariums GRO 1 is really nice but pretty pricey. The CO2Art Pro SE seems like a good compromise between GRO and cheap Amazon regulators. Thoughts? Any other suggestions? I don't have the time to a DIY my own regulator.

You could buy an already assembled diy co2 regulator from the appropriate subforum here.

I am currently hunting for my own cheapy eBay regulator to then add parts to. I admit I haven't done it yet but screwing in a few things with a wrench sure seems like the work of minutes not hours. And since you can buy all your parts from one location it honestly seems pretty easy to me. So for likely less than 150$ you get a working co2 regulator that is top notch. /Shrug

If you go for a cheaper regulator, buy a good quality speed controller. Don't trust the needle valve on the cheap regulator.
