Default Rigging my little O2 bottle?

I have one of those little O2 bottles from HD or Lowes. What's the best way to rig it up with hardware store pieces to oxygenate my wort .

Aquarium hose to brass transition to vinyl hose to stone barb.

I prefered to use more of the aquarium hose than the larger vinyl based soley on the aquarium hose wastes less volume after the valve is turned off.

Can you get a valve for one of these tanks @ HD or Lowe's?

Ooops. Assumed you had the regulator already.

There are torche kits that have the regulator valves in them but, for a quarter of that kit cost you can get a regulator from an online HBS.
