    CO2 setup > what else do I need

    Got a used 5lb CO2 tank and valve thanks to @John7429 and going through Amazon to buy bubble counter, hose and diffuser and thought I'd best ask. Don't want to have the CO2 tank or valve coming shooting through glass if I if I need a certain pressure etc -still remember that little 45g CO2 cylinder loudly hooting the diffuser against the glass when I adjusted it wrong.

    Hose is straight forward I guess CO2 resistant and 3/16. Which Check valve? Bubble counter? Diffuser? Thanks.

I may get that money in the next 15-20 years just in time for adult diapers. If this bothers you don't click on any links to products I post.

    I would say purchase a wall outlet timer to control co2 duration in your tank

    In your defense you did actually say you were going to' drop it off' -and it didn't explode- so I can't complain. I assume the hissing sound it has been making will go away eventually
