I would stick with Milwaukee or JBJ. They are sold at most online retailers and lfs.

I use a standard beverage regulator, DIY buble counter and reactor. It does the job just fine for less than $50 total!

FYI - Azoo is now on sale at Doctors for $74.99.
After reading many good reviews I ordered one to use on my 10gal.

I would not stick with Milwaukee or JBJ...IME the Azoo outperforms both (very reputable company from Taiwan).

Re-boot!

have heard a neet little diy bubble counter can be made out of a 5cc oral syringe, a plastic check valve and some silicone, but would use something with far more volume if I was doing diy co2.

58 gallon oceanic, Kessel 360 tun sun, pressurized co2, eheim pimp #179 - 2217 and diffuser

Spend $80 bucks and get a good regulator. I bought a Millwaukee from Aquabotanic.com and couldn't be happier.
