I need help with buying a co2 system for a 55g tank.

Is this a good co2 setup?
Is the price ok or can I buy this parts cheaper?
I would like to order almost everything from the same site.

Before you buy an aluminum Co2 tank, make sure the places in your area refill tanks. A lot of places only swap full tanks for empty ones and they don't use fancy aluminum tanks. A 10lb tank is also very large so make sure you have room. I have a 5lb tank on my 55 and it lasts a long time and it also fits inside the stand.

The Milwaukee regulator (not reactor) has a built in needle valve. I don't think you need to bother to buy another one.

Good luck. Shop around. Check out some of the sponsors here on APC too!
approxametly how long did it last??
