    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone around here came across these tiny bulkhead fittings that are originally for R/C planes.

    It's from this article http://www.qsl.net/w2wdx/aquaria/diyco2.html and i this it's a much better solution compared with the method silicone and hotglue.

    BTW, i live around KL area so maybe anyone can point me to somewhere that sells these? thanks

    Why not just buy those Co2 caps for DIY systems... looks like this:



    You can get them from sellers on eBay or AliExpress/TaoBao.

    I'm afraid that some of these caps have different diameter/threads than the common bottles. I've had issues even with bottles from different brands.
    Plus, at my place I've seen these kits sold at nearly the price of a manual co2 regulator, if i do get those, might aswell go the pressurized route

    But anyway thanks UrbanAquaria

    The first pic doesn't load tho, but looks promising. Can you link to maybe another photo of just the bulkhead alone?
    Thanks
