I think you will find a lot better deal a your local welding supply 
shop.  I bought a 5lb tank filled with CO2  and a regulator for $142 
including the tax. I live in a small town and didn't have many 
dealers to choose from.  In a larger town you may be able to shop 
around for a better deal.  I assume because you have a DIY system 
going now you have some sort of reactor. The only other thing you 
will need is a needle valve which you can get for about $10. You also 
might want to consider http://marine-monsters.com .  They offer a 
system  (except for the tank) including a solenoid valve for $175.
