a while back I got a co2 regulator from a member here and it worked pretty good. now it refuses to go past 1 bubble per second! I have everything dialed to the max. the needle valve is maxed out and my diffuser is clean. I am using a check valve, co2 proof tubing, and a regular glass diffuser. the only thing I can think of is a leak. I know I have co2 in the tank because the meter reads 900 psi. I have talked to someone here on the forum and they said that the needle valves push fit connection could be leaking. please help, my tank is currently covered in blue green algae and my hair grass needs co2! I'm borderline thinking about just closing down the tank because I have had so much trouble with the current co2 setup. the setup is currently on a paintball tank.

Well, they are designed so that they don't leak, but you never know.

If your high pressure gauge is indicating 900 PSI, your delivery pressure is ~30 PSI, and your needle valve is open (unscrewed, turned counterclockwise) all the way, and yet you still have no gas going into the aquarium, there is probably a leak somewhere (or if you have a solenoid, ensure that it is open and not closed).
ok i will check tomorrow and report back. thanks!
