I wish that someone who had used this Tetra Bell system can tell you.  But
if you provide me the exact dimensions of the cylinder (height not including
the cylinder valve) and the outside diameter, I should be able to figure
something out - but it will be at the best an *estimate* so don't hold me
responsible if anything bad happens as a result of this.  ; )  Also, does
your local dealer has the Aqualine Buschke CO2 system in stock (distributed
by Red Sea Fish pHarm now)?  Compare the size of the Tetra bottle with this
AB one.  If they are nearly identical (visually speaking), then I can boldly
say that you are looking at a 300 gram bottle.  But you better double-check
one way or the other.  If you have a paint ball supply shop nearby, bring in
your bottle and see if there is a comparable one in terms of size.  Very
likely, there is.
