I don't have any pictures so I'll paint one for you with prose. ;)  I have a
5 lb tank with dual guage regulator and metering valve. The metering valve
is "L" shaped and is fitted to regulator's output, which comes off the
bottom of the regulator. I set the CO2 cylinder on the lower shelf of my
metal aquarium stand and strap it to the rear right leg with black
electrical tie straps. (These are very strong, cheap, and abundant, so when
it's time to refill I just cut them.) Then I put either a potted plant in
front of it, or a metal cat statue, depending on time of the year (potted
plant goes outside in warm weather). You can still see a little bit of the
tank valve and regulator either way, but not enough to make my wife

I'll take a pale ale, please.
