Just picked it up for $60. I scored it from a saltwater aquarium forum.

Here is a closer pic of the gauge, thanks for your help I definitely don't have a lot of experience dealing with gas. Jonp you're good looks like the tank is from 96.

the only problem you might run into is that the low pressure can only be adjusted to 15 psu. when you force carb, you might not be able to get the pressure you want. if its from a fish store, the bubble systems they use use very little co2. your low end gauge reads 15, you might only be able to get 20 psi out of it max.

you will need it tested before anyone reputable fills it.

Ahhh I didn't even think about the limitations of the low pressure. Would it be a good ides to just get the guage posted by Yuri and use the current gauge as my secondary for dispensing?

thats kind of the setup i was talking about. it looks pretty pricy though. as far as using the reg you just got with that tank, that will be fine for pushing beer from a tap
