Montreal - Where can I get a Co2 Tank?

Hi Guys,

I bought a new fish tank 3 years ago and it is still in the box, because I can't complete my set.
I'm missing a Co2 Tank and don't know where to get it.
Guard-X said that they do not offer such equipment...
Atelier Bière et Vin Inc. said no too.

Can someone please help me find a Co2 Tank?

Thanks for your time,

David

Does it have to be a particular kind? Paintball co2 cans are used quite a bit

Hi Gboy66

Well from my understanding it has to be atleast Food Grade.
I'm not sure whats inside the Paintball Co2.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Thanks for the link Gboy66

It is quite interesting, but I would need something like 5 or 10 lb.
I would also need to know where to refill it after.. since Guard-x won't do it.


Where do people in Montreal go to get their Co2 Tanks?

It's complicated to have a fish tank :P

Yes there's a few, but everytime I tell them its for my fish tank they don't have the equipment for it...

Am I doing it wrong?
