Today while waiting to get my 2 lb CO2 bottle filled at a welding shop, I 
inquired about a 10 lb bottle.  The discussion led to building a CO2 
system.  The individual I talked to said he would be able to supply the 
bottle, valve, regulator and gauges for somewhere around $250.  To get a 
manual system you would also need a needle valve to regulate the supply to 
the aquarium.  FYI, I add CO2 continuously using a needle valve to control 
the rate.  This has worked very well for almost 3 years.

If you have any welding shops near you, take the catalog and see what they 
can do.
