Hey EVeryone,

This is my first post here so be easy on me...lol

anyways, I have a 46 gallon bowfront and was told that I should step up from my DIY to a pressurized co2 system. Now my question is which regulator is the best: the Azoo (comes in a package from Dr Foster and Smith) for around 120 bucks or a Milwaukee regulator for around 79 bucks?

Does anyone have any preference between the Milwaukee, JBJ and Azoo Regulators?

I have pretty much narrowed it down to the Milwaukee and Azoo regulator. The Milwaukee for its quality and the Azoo for its simplicity for beginners. Does anyone have any experience with these and setting them up?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi J

I have two to the Azoo regulators and I like them.

I also have ap.com's "The Best" regulator. http://www.aquariumplants.com/AQUARIUMPLANTS_com_s_Co2_Regulator_The_BEST_p/co2-1.htm

Rex Grigg custom makes high quality CO2 regulators and he also sells the brass check valve, tubing and other goodies. http://www.rexgrigg.com/sale.html

Aqua Botanic sells high quality regulators as well plus other needed parts for CO2 injection. It's "The Ultimate C02 regulator." http://www.aquabotanic.com/abstore/index.html?lmd=39155.736863

Azoo has a new CO2 regulator as well: http://www.aquaticeco.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/iid/22494

Thanks Left

I have pretty much narrowed it down to either the older Azoo or the Aqua Botanic Ultimate Regulator. DOes anyone have any experience with the Aquabotanic (any problems)?

I think I am going to get a Rhinox as a diffuser off of Ebay if I go with the AB kit and not the Foster and Smith Azoo package.

I've read positive reviews on AZOO regulators but having said that you should always look for a kind of regulator that you set it once and just leave it ,no readjusting 2-3 times a day ,no headaches.
I recently put a co2 system together from scratch,using "TAPRITE" regulator and "CLIPPARD"parts.you could assemble one yourself ,but if you are not comfortable doing it I would highly recommend buying a set from REX.

I have the option for a bubble counter. However it's not mounted on the regulator. Reason is that the needle valve I use, Clippard MNV-4K has 10-32 ports. And as at least one member here can attest to those little threads don't have a lot of mechanical strength.
