Re: CO2 setup

No, not really.

Reason: mainly links that many other folks have as well as many books already have laid out for you.

There are dozens of links to various different CO2 set ups.

I use a gas tank, regulator, needle valve, sometimes: bubble counter, Check valve.

For the lines, I use silicone tubing or the tygon tubing.
Forn the reactor/diffusion, I use an internal venturi like on the site here, and external reactor(I make these myself), or a mist method.

I use a solenoid tio turn the CO2 off at night in most cases, I never leave CO2 on at night.

I did a quick search for CO2 tubing and it seems like there are several varieties. Tygon, silicone, rigid... My last setup had soft silicone tubing which was easy to work with - came with my Dupla setup that I got 15 years ago :). Can anyone suggest which tubing type to get and where to get it?

Thanks,
Will

Tygon is nice.
Clippard sells gas line also for cheap.
Silicone works for most folks also.
