fcastro, Jenn,

Check out aquabuys.com, I got my milwaukee there 81.95 and free shipping. It comes with it's own needle valve so don't worry about buying another one. I have had it on my 55gallon for about two months and no problems. You will just need to set it at around 17 to 20 lbs of pressure to make sure thew needle valve will work without slowing down. I bought a 10lb cylinder on ebay for like $70including shipping, it was used but in better shape than the ones at the welding places in my area. It is huge but I don't think I will have to exchange it for like a year.

My suggestion would be to look into a CO2 reactor instead of a diffuser. A diffuser will need to have the co2 going full speed IMO to keep a 55 gallon at 30ppm CO2. Also at aquabuys you will need to get a CO2 dropchecker. Read up on the above at the Aquarium Equipment section. You will need to buy or make some 4dKH indicator solution to make sure that you are maintaining the right CO2 level. I have some I may be able to send to you for shipping cost.
