DO NOT get the reg you posted. I bought it about 7 months ago and within 2wks it failed. Personally, I would get a standard regulator that can be used with an adapter. That way if you move up to a larger tank, you're all set with your regulator instead of having to buy another.

I have a reg very similar to the one you posted from ThatPetPlace. The body it all stainless though. It works fine and has been for several months. The only problem is that the needle valve is not great.

I use a controller on it so as long as CO2 is flowing, I'm not overly concerned with bubble count.

The GLA one is probably the best and double the price. I'll be getting mine within a few weeks so I'll be able to compare. I'm sure I'll see how good the GLA one is.

Hmm thats odd. I have that exact same regulator and its been working fine for over a year now.
I was going to say the same thing, had mine for over a year, and it works perfect

I have a feeling that I will just get a standard regulator with an adapter.
With all the choices available, anyone know of a reliable regulator with a post body for less than $75?

I've got something that I think you'll like.

It's used but in excellent working condition complete with:

- 20oz CO2 tank with on/off valve (hydrostat tested date good for another 4 years)

- Regulator

- Bubble counter

- Check valve

- Diffuser

A complete set that's READY TO GO. All you'll need is to fill the CO2 tank!

Once I get home, I'll PM you a picture of the complete setup.
