The Nupro valve actually a "metering" valve. I haven't used it but it
appears to be suitable for CO2 fertilization purposes. The fittings are
1/4-inch NPT so it shouldn't be a problem connecting it to your regulator.
Might even hook directly onto it if you're lucky. Cheaper valves can be had
that will also work fine, such as the needle valves from Monolith Marine

I inject into the intake tube of my filter and it works just fine. If you
want to make a reactor, there are some ideas on The Krib:


There's info on bubble counters there as well.
