    Hi, I managed to get a nice co2 tank, it is filled, I assume to a mix of gas and power, I would like to know how to clean it and make it safe for fish and plants. If anyone can offer any advice I would be grateful?

    I would assume you would need a regulator that you could adjust to the correct BPS you require.
    Not sure that the current setup will allow for the fine tuning required.

    The blue thing on the top looks like a type of solenoid.

    check on the bottle if it says DCP or CO2

    DCP - dry chemical powder

    i also ha e a cylinder but still need to change the top to accommodate the regulator.
