My advise is dont get those small cylinder that you press and co2 flow out that kind. really get a cylinder with co2 and regulator saves time refilling for small tank and also last longer.

My advise is to get the larger tank like the 5L. It takes up just a little more space than the 3L and cost a little more but last alot longer between refills. Sending it for refills is a problem if you are not driving or near an LFS.

if space is an isssue ( since you keeping a small tank) no need opt so big cylinder. 2kg and 3.5kg should suffice for quite a while tlll the next refill . can hide under the table or somewhere.

get a 2nd cylinder one. saves you the hassle in the future and it also provides better c02 supplies as compared to those like diy co2. its cheap also, ard 40-50 you can score a cylinder with manual knob and bubble counter.

just make sure you have bubble counter + a diffuser. about 3count per sec but best to test your kh and ph and then adjust accordingly the co2 .
