The nice things is that it's super easy to fill up; all you have to do is swing by your local SportsAuthority or paintball store, and it's only a couple of dollars.

What you can do is if you have a larger tank, you can slap on a paintball refill siphon and use the larger tank to fill the smaller one. =)

Not sure if this is allowed but I saw this link on plantedtank.net

Another Paintball DIY for Newbs. - The Planted Tank Forum

I was thinking I could do something similar to get the regulator to clear the top of the cabinet. I guess I don't understand why this setup would not work on a 5 or 10lb tank. Not sure on what my refil options would be, if it requires changing tanks though

when I say I have 2 inches I do mean 20 inches, so worst case I guess I get a 5# tank rather than a 10, but I have sceen a few 10# tanks that are 17" to the top of the valve. however I'm not sure when they were last inspected...

eBay: 10 lb Co2 Air Tank Keg Beer Tap Kegerator (item 300001591411 end time Nov-22-06 13:24:51 PST)
eBay: 10 lb aluminim Co2 tank (item 160054890464 end time Nov-24-06 20:00:00 PST)

The first one says 20" high. With the carrying handle (other auctions), it's 22" high. I think you might have to go with a 5# tank.

I think we have to place the order soon, just in case, so for the regultor i think we need 2 more to avail the discount, and for the Diffuser let me know.

Is the Heavenly Stairs diffuser really much better than the Hagen Ladder? What is the group buy cost?

I hope we can find 2 more people for the regulators...

Yup, a few bucks cheaper per person. Cheaper shipping too. I think it was ~$65 when someone from San Diego ordered it. So ~$10 shipping if we order it separate.

If it comes down to it I would go ahead and get 2 to get everyone the group buy so long as I don't have to pay twice the shipping :P But if we get 2 more people one is fine.
