check out www.greenleafaquariums.com as well. They may not be the cheapest possible but the customer service is excellent and from what I hear the quality is good as well.

Well if you are looking for brand names instead of home built, consider Red Sea, Milwaukee, or Tunze.
Red Sea has a nice complete system that includes everything but the tank. Even includes a drop checker, that reads the C02 level in your water. The complete kit is a better deal than just buying the regulator by itself.

I was thinking to get this regulator but do you notice the connector is different? It is the oversea CO2 connector which Taiwan, Japan and other countries are using. The us one is different, ask them to see if they sell some kind of adaptor for it.

Also note that there is no manual ajustment for the working pressure. When you attach the regulator to the cylinder, it automaticaly ajusts to whatever pressure it was designed for. This has its pros and cons.

Irvine California where this seller is, is close to the major import hub on the west coast from Asia. Asian products flood into there by the truckload every day, and its real easy for someone to get something like this and slap their name on it. Find out if there is any kind of warranty. Usually there is no warranty, nobody to return it to if something is wrong with it. Milwaukee and JBJ are probably made by the same chinese company, but they carry an American warranty, and are screened and tested before they are shipped.

Do the JBJ regulators have an adjustment for working pressure? I have a JBJ and never used or adjusted this. Only the needlve valve adjustment is all ive used.
