Question Newbie needs your help

I live in Hawaii (Oahu to be specific) and wanted to know where on this island can I buy a co2 tank, regulator, solenoid, bubble counter, etc. Any help from others is greatly appreciated. I'm going to try and do a pressurized tank system and would like to any info on purchasing these items. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum. Even with shipping, online is usually still cheaper. Check ebay for a co2 tank. You should be able to find a 5lb tank for around $60-$80. For a whole regulator setup, I suggest sumoregulator.com. Those guys are great over there. I don't know if you need lights but catalinaaquarium.com and ahsupply.com are good places to look also.

i got my 5lb CO2 tank from learntobrew. i emailed them and asked for parcel post shipping (i kinda complained with the shipping bullsh** with the limited shipping options which are expensive as hell). i also bought the biggest paintball CO2 tank from walmart for my smaller tank. regulators and the rest of the parts, i purchased through ebay. still way cheaper than getting the full setup on the island.
