There is no comparison of a liquid form to pressurize gas. Let your mom get the system for you. You will see for yourself.
Fyi, some systems will run alot higher than $200. Regulators alone can be about 200+, unless you get a cheap one from Amazon. I still use my aquaclear one from Amazon, but people have told me it's garbage. After the regulator, you still need the tank, hoses, check valve, bubble counter, and diffuser.
