That looks fine to me. Dual stage regulator with needle valve is as almost as complete as it gets. You'll have to decide if you want to add a solenoid but otherwise it should be OK.

Cheers,

I looked at that set, and decided that the extra money for the 2kg cylinder was pointless as getting them refilled is problematic. I'd be tempted to go for the 500g instead as reading around it seems that people have less trouble getting these refilled. If you want a 2kg bottle you can always add on a CO2 fire extinguisher. At least the 2kg systems Lunapet do have a glass diffuser not those ugly plastic reactors, but I just ordered a set of 2 medium sized 'pollen glass' diffusers from Advance Aquarium Shop (also on eBay) along with a glass drop checker to replace my plastic ones.

If however you aren't that bothered about been able to refill the bottle, then that one seems like a good choice. I decided to go the route of a solenoid as well though for the health of my fish and my wallet as they extend the life of each refill.

I brought this exact 2kg set, pretty good value for money, its been running pretty good in the tank since I received it.
I did get a broken gauge with the delivery, but a new replacement was sent pretty fast and arrived 4 days later. Excelent service too.
