    I wrote an article recently for my local fish society's newsletter on my use of a paintball CO2 cylinder to inject CO2 into my 5g tank. I figured ya'll might be interested in this as well.

    I should note though.. that the way I did it is probably quite unsafe since I was trying to keep the price down and I wanted to keep the dimensions of the apparatus to a minimum. So.. people should do as I say, not as I do... at any rate if anything goes wrong for someone else.. its not my fault. I'm comfortable with the risk, but I'm not going to blame anyone else for something I did, regardless of where I may have or have not read it.

    Cool idea. This might be the solution for an office nano tank.

    My son has an old CO2 cannister that he used before he switched to compressed air. But, I think I will spring for a regulator. The local wine / beer making supply store sells them. I will have to see if they fit. Refills shuldn't be a problem. Any paintball field will refill a tank for a few dollars and, since my son is still playing, I am there more frequently than I would like :)
