I have heard that sumo co2 systems are good quality so i am concisdering one for a 125g.
First question is an "ideal" valve the best option or would a swaglok valve bee good? I would rather go with the ideal if its better in the long run.
second: do i need a ph controler or would :

"The SuMo Premier Controllable CO2 Regulator Package includes:

Electric solenoid valve with red LED to signal the valve is powered on
Five feet of high quality flexible CO2 tubing
A brass check valve
Your choice of Ideal or Swagelok metering valve"

be everything i need (plus tank and diffuser).

another thing, what size tank would be best?
the tank is in a bedroom so worst case senerio, a 10 or 20lbs tank leaks all co2 out over night when a person is sleeping . would that amount of co2 have any health hazards (assuming the tank was full)?

what are other good co2 regulators or packages?
anybody have some pics of their co2 setups so i can get a better grasp of the overall setup?
the main reason i want co2 is im gettign algae and i just cant get the plants to as good as i want them, excell helped abit, however its just not practical in the long run.
