    Default Starting a pressurized CO2 build


    0 Not allowed!
    I am starting a CO2 build after running a yeast system for a year on my 30 gallon. I have been reading and feel pretty confident on the the parts of a build post CO2 tank. My main question is what kind of CO2 tank is the best to get and where are the best places to fill it. I just don't want to be pumping stuff into the tank that can hurt my fish. Any advice would be great!

    I bought my CO2 tank from a on-line aquarium supply store

    I get it filled at a local company that services fire extinguishers. Most all the members of our local aquarium society get their tanks filled there as well
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Thanks, where did you buy your tank from. I think I need a 5 gallon since I don't think a 10 gallon would fit in the cabinet.

    +1 to what Cliff said. Most seasoned CO2 users I've spoken to seem to use fire extinguishers. Having used a yeast-based system I'm sure your experience with CO2 will be plenty to get you off to a good start with pressurised.

    I got mine from a Canadian company that doesn't ship into the USA
