Parts for a dual stage regulator

Hello my DIY gurus! I have recently decided to purchase a second 5 lb co2 tank and am now going to need a regulator. I asked around for some that weren't holy grail expensive, and the bottom line is, I guess they are such a commodity that no one really has any cheap ones. SO. It was recommended that I could build one myself and save money that way. 


We've all, for the most part, had the dreaded cyanobacteria battle at one point or another. Weather it be new tank syndrome or an excess of nutrients the bacteria seeks, cyano is quite common to come by and quite a pain to get rid of. One key point to realize is that cyano, unlike algae (which it is often mistaken for), is a bacteria feeding off not only light, but certain nutrients in the tank. With that being said, shutting it out from the light will not work.

Well, it been a while. But I'm getting close to being done with my newest build. Been working on it for the better part of the day. I will put ABG mix and leaf litter in it tomorrow. Granted I'm stuck on the plants. Hopefully I can find someone to hook me up with some cuttings, or I'm going to have to wait till I got some $$$ to get some. Well here are some pics, and I will discuss the build if anybody has any questions.
