I am getting supplies together for pressurized CO2. I will be using a 10lb tank with this regulator system, http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&viewitem=&item=120024559662&rd=1&rd=1
The tank will be a 55 g corner bowfront. The other option is RedSea brand but I figure the milwaukee is prob better.

I am looking at buying a glass diffuser and want to know what the consensus is on brands. Here are a couple that I found and would love opinions, experiences please.

Any other brands not listed that are better?

Thanks.

There's been many complaints over the years with the Milwaukee regulator. It's a QC issue, I believe. Some work great and some don't.

Here's some other regulators to consider:
Rex's: http://www.rexgrigg.com/sale.html
Aqua Botanic's 'Ulitmate': http://www.aquabotanic.com/abstore/index.html
AquariumPlants.com's 'The Best': http://www.aquariumplants.com/AQUARIUMPLANTS_com_s_Co2_Regulator_The_BEST_p/co2-1.htm
Azoo (older): http://www.drsfostersmith.com/Product/Prod_Display.cfm?pcatid=9895&N=2004+113779
Azoo (newer): http://www.aquaticeco.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/product.detail/iid/22494
I haven't read any articles about people that are using the 'newer' Azoo regulator.


I haven't used any of those diffusers so I can't comment about them.

I run the CO2 into the intake of my Eheim. works GREAT-no diffusor in the tank, and more efficient than a diffusor. (be causefukt though- Eheims don't mind it, but some other filters get angry when you put CO2 in them)
