Anyone know of this is ok for using as a cheap CO2 bottle in a planted aquarium and what size regulator would fit it?

Thanks

No, I did the same as you, had a nano regulator and looked and any way I could to get larger (and cheaper!) bottles to fit. I ended up drawing a blank and bought a reg to fit disposable bottles instead.

I have seen some reg adaptors that work to convert my nano reg to take the larger disposable welding Co2 bottles, so could be option as i only recently purchased my Nano reg with solenoid and don't want outlay again so soon.

Ah that sounds promising. It was 10 years ago that i had the issue with finding an adapter (there weren't any! )
Please can you post your solution when you have it? I'm interested.
