    looks real good. If you're not saving for a regulator set up, I would start, you'll be making the jump to hightech very soon I suspect.

    I have 5 tanks, and they all use LED. They all grow plants well, but I'm particularly fond of TrueLumen Pros these days. My DIY build isn't too shabby either.

    I wish I'd the money to go LED, I love the glitter, TMC are a huge brand here but I can't stand the things, they're so ugly, they look like shed lights.

    I would say pressurised first, I'd ignore that fluval rig myself, save your money and buy a rig from Lunapet or similar, a 2kg fire extinguisher lasts me around 4 months, I should think 88g would last a week or two tops, it'd cost a small fortune in no time!

    that regulator you listed I would never buy. I've bought asain regs in the past and the quality just isn't there.
    Buy cheap, buy twice.
    Lunapet make the best cheap regulators, german quality. You'll need a reg, solenoid and timer, you've got everything else you need, you'll be looking at spending £60 ish.

    Yes, you wind the "horn" off, bolt the reg on, fire and tape the handle down, I paid £9 for my last FE to be refilled and £20 for a full bottle, much cheaper and easier to find than "proper" gas tanks are in the uk.
