Back when I was shopping for a cylinder, the only bad thing with beveragefactory was that they only ship using ups. For HI it's hella expensive.

I did a quick search and I found this one free shipping (includes HI) http://morebeerpro.com/view_product/.../CO2_Tank_5_lb but do some more searching first. You can probably find it even cheaper than this.

Good filtration is a good start but depending on your lighting and plants you may need co2 quite quickly. Eheim's are supposed to be like BMW's so should be good. I personally run a magnum 350 about half the price seems pretty efficient too. More like a Honda. Anyway good luck with your search you may also want to keep in mind the shipping time for a co2 tank, regulator, needle etc. If you find you need co2 you might have to dose Flourish while waiting can get expensive.

i just looked at regulators and it got me confused. some have the electric solenoid which bumps up the price to more than $100!!! i found some manual regulators which goes to just around $50. what does the electric solenoid do anyway? is it necessary?

A solenoid should turn on and off the flow of CO2 based on the electricity flowing to it. Its useful when you have a pH regulator or a timer to turn it on and off, with the lights for example. At least that is how I understand its use .
