Anyone know of a good place to get a CO2 tank around DeKalb? I'm pretty new to Illinois (just moved in a month ago) and I'm setting up a new tank. Also, any recommendations to LFSs around the area? I've only been to the Aquarium Adventures...

If you are just looking for the tank have you tried a welding supply store? You should be able to find one or two using google or the yellow pages.

Don't know about CO2 tanks, but you can get hagen sets at petsmart on sycamore road. I,ve been using these with nice results. Welcome to DeKalb area--we've been here since 1997 and planted tanks are really new to us.

Ni co2

Hi,

My tank was filled at Rockford Carbonic here in Rockford. I have also heard that Rockford Industrial Welding Supply will fill. As far as getting a tank, try RIWS or another option is a homebrew supply.

As far as LFS' in the area, there's not much here. Just went to Aquarium Adventure (Hoffman Estates) and they have by far the best and biggest selection I have seen. In Madison (actually Middleton) there is a nice little store - can't think of the name but if you google Middleton and aquarium store you'll find it. Smaller place, but great people - I didn't think I would be able to get out of there - guys were really helpful. Supposed to be a good one in Milwaukee - haven't trekked there yet. Good luck!
