Default Where to buy co2?

Hello,
I'd like to get setup with co2 for my 2.5gal tank. I happen to have a cheap regulator (i.e. I don't know if it's any good) and was looking to get a bottle. What are my options here in Dallas? I looked at the ebay prices and since they come empty, I'd just have to goto a welding store to fill it up anyways.

If you are located in North Dallas, you could try Garland Oxygen Supply.

I found a place called USA Aquarium Traders or something like that. It's located in the Garden Ridge Mall off of Spring Creek and 75 in Plano. They've got a small little plant equipment section. They sell their bottles way over-priced, but they are perfect for nano use I think.

Check for CO2 on craigslist. That is where the best deals on bottles are. I fill mine at AirGas. Just have to be patient, 20lb ones pop up and are the best deal when refilling, although I know you have a tiny tank to use this on if you can hide the CO2 it will last you several years without a refill and the refills cost about the same no matter what size tank you have.

I heard places like Sport's Authority, or ****'s (or whatever the equivalent of a huge sports shop in Dallas is) will fill up CO2 tanks - typically for paintball folks.

That's not a curse word. I suppose the owner of the store's name was Richard and he went by his nickname.
