    CO2 regulator recommendations

    Ok probably an old question that has been asked over and over. But here I am down the rabbit hole of regulators and bubble counters. So Iím reaching out for advice. Obviously this is my first high tech CO2 delivery system. I am not attached to the best or the greatest, nor the cheapest. I just want something that will be reliable. I already have a tank.
    So what is the best bang for your buck when it comes to regulators.
    From reading I assume a dual stage is used to prevent end of tank dump, is that really necessary?
    So sorry to ask a question that has likely already been asked and lost in the archives, but I would be grateful for Regulator advice.
    I plan on putting it on a timer.

    I would take a look at fzone as they seem really similar to the UNS regulators, their prices are also really reasonable. There is also a dual-stage regulator under many different names on amazon for 60-100, not sure how reliable that would be. Or just buy a regulator from greenleafaquarium or co2art. If you're handy you could potentially build one.

    When I was shopping around for regulators, I ended up going with co2art. It's dual stage, comes with bubble counter, and free shipping for $150.They usually have coupon codes for some % off. Got to me fast too.

    Biggest pro for me was that there was plenty of reviews and plenty of good reviews compared to other regulators at the time.

    A year into ownership and still going strong, don't regret buying it at all.

    Another +1 for co2art. They make a solid regulator for the price.
