    I am considering setting up pressurized CO2 for my 10gallon and I want to do so with a 24oz paintball co2 tank. This question is about wether paintball CO2 is harmful in any way? I was looking to find a source near me (Maryland) that would refill my tank and the only place I found that will fill...

    Our new adaptor allows you to connect our Pro elite or pro SE regulator to your choice of CO2 cylinder.

    I thought it would be helpful to post a mini guide on how to attach a nylon washer to a CGA320 adapter for the paintball setups out there. I knew when I first started it was hard to find good pictures I could use to orient myself for proper placement of the washers. So here it is and hopefully...

    Hello, Mr Noob here. I made the plunge and bought a paintball CO2 system. Got the tank filled (SIZE = 20 oz) , brought 'er home, screwed on my adapter to my regular, screwed the two onto the paintball tank... HISS!!!!!!!!!!:surprise: I unscrewed it, realized it needs to be VERY tight, and...

    I've found several threads on the matter but all seem to be several years old. I've got a 5 gallon tank and have been using the same 20oz co2 canister for what seems to be a year. I had another canister that I never ended up filling but that's proving to be a nightmare compared to a year ago. I...

    quick question: Is a 24oz paintball setup on a 40 gallon good enough to maintain decent co2 levels? If i run it at the average bubble a second for 8 hours a day, will it last me at least 2-3 months? Or is it too small and be a nuisance to have to refill every month? I have plants that dont...

    So i received a rebate from this thing i purchased and now I'm debating whether i should get the CO2 system I've always wanted.. A paintball co2 system for about 140 bucks. Should i go for it? I'm on the edge about this . . It's from a rebate, but i feel i could spend it else where, like on...

    For the last 2 months or so my Aquatek solenoid is not closing all the way or something when it shuts off. The CO2 still flows, an it is becoming frustrating. I've gotten nowhere with Aquatek's customer service after I told them I bought the unit in December and I'm well out of the lame 90 day...

    Anyone knows where to get these 20oz PB tanks refilled other than "The Security/Hobby Store" in Mt Vernon? I can't believe there is no place in this area to get a PB tank refilled at a reasonable price.

    So I went to this place in Mount Vernon called Security/Hobby Store, its basically two stores in one, a store for car alarms and a Hobby store selling remote control cars, trains, etc. I couldn't find a place that would fill my 20oz paintball tank in the bronx or yonkers, so the guys at...

    I'm planning out my next tank, and was considering a paintball CO2 setup since it's a bit cheaper. I found this regulator for ~$30, which I've seen a few other people here use... http://www.harborfreight.com/regulator-gauge-94841.html My question is, with an adapter, will this be okay to use...

    Since the Aquatek of CA mini is sold out I am on the hunt for a solid regulator to be used on a 9oz paintball cylinder. The tank is a 3 gallon and all components (canister filter, co2, etc) will be on a table top setup so I would like for the regulator to be as attractive as possible (the less...

    I'm currently running a GLA paintball regulator on 20oz tanks to supply CO2 to my 7gal and 12 gal. I would like to upgrade to a 5# or 10# tank to supply my 60gal as well, but I wasn't really looking to have to purchase or build a new regulator setup. I know there are adapters to connect a...
