Pressurized CO2 components after regulator needed

New - totally new to planted tanks. I have many tanks running now and have a 150 gallon to be set up in the next few weeks. I will convert 1 of my 55' to a planted tank to use as a training tank, then decide whether I want to set up the 150 as planted.
I have been researching systems and here's where I'm at. I have actually 2 co2 regulators to use with 1 being a good one duel gauge that I used for a kegerator, and the 2nd is a lesser quality single gauge one. I want to add a check valve, needle valve, solenoid and bubbler to the good regulator and use that to learn with on the 55, then move it to the 150 If I decide to set up the 150 planted.

Can someone advise on a list of parts that a recommended?

I've concluded that the needle valve is the weak link. Also if there's a one stop shopping site to get all those components listed. I have the tank and regulator, so all compontents after the reg is up in the air.

Check some of these post regulator parts. You might be able to find most of them on evilbay.
I go for the fabco nv55 mounted and the mouse needle solenoid.
I'm using it without any issues and cheapest out of the bunch, but still reliable.
