 I  have  tried  using  the  coco  cola  bottles.  Did  it  as  an  experiment.  Never  tried  the  stainless  steel  cylinder.  It  works  quite  well  as  long  as  you  don't  have   a  leak,  otherwise  you  end  up  priming  it  daily  which  gets  irritating  within  a  few  days.

 I  don't  think  it's  worth  spending  so  much.  You  can  purchase  pressurized  CO2  system  that  is  cylinder,  regulator  and  solenoid  if  you  are  willing  to  spend  6k.
 Peace  of  mind,  one  time  investment  and  long  term  solution.  It  will  cost  you  lesser  than  diy  in  long  term.

 shop  locally  you  can  get  everything  cheap,  online  is  convenient  but  expensive  in  this  particular  case.  stay  safe,  don't  buy  the  refurbished  cylinders...  get  a  new  one.  It  will  be  within  above  budget  if  you  go  with  a  2  kg  new  cylinder.

 I  live  in  Bangalore  and  I  had  procured  a  refurbished  3  KG  CO2  cylinder  +  regulator  locally  and  solenoid  valve  online.  I  spent  approx.  similar  as  below.  By  any  means  I  do  not  encourage  buying  a  refurbished  one,  as  Preetam  said  stay  safe.
 
 Rs.  800/-  co2  solenoid  valve  -  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Brand-New-1Pcs-220V-Magnetic-Solenoid-Valve-Night-Time-CO2-DIY-Aquarium-System-Regulator-bubble-counter/32535518182.html?
 
 Rs.  1400/-  CO2  Single  Gauge  regulator,  you  may  get  at  same  price  in  local  shops  :  https://www.aliexpress.com/item/aquarium-co2-single-gauge-decompression-regulator-control-vavle-interface-G5-8-for-fish-tank-water-plants/32606163942.html?s
 
 Rs.  3000/-  (or  may  be  less)  2  KG  co2  Cylinder  refurbished.  Just  check  local  gas  refill  stores  (CO2,  O2  or  industrial  supply)  OR  who  deals  with  fire  fighting  equipment.
 CO2  cylinder  something  similar  to  >>  https://aquabynature-shop.com/co2-cylinders/158-2-kg-co2-cylinder-refurbished.html
 
 Items  from  aliexpress  will  take  about  a  months  time  to  reach  you.

 I  am  curious,  whats  the  manufacturing  date  on  the  refurbished  cylinder,  (year  and  Month  of  manufacture  is  stamped  on  the  cylinder  it  cant  be  removed)  even  a  new  cylinder  needs  to  be  tested  every  5  years....
 Did  you  get  a  pressure  test  certificate  when  you  bought  one?  
 How  long  can  you  safely  use  the  refurbished  cylinder  safely?

 As  I  mentioned  in  my  previous  post,  not  by  any  means  I  do  not  encourage  buying  a  refurbished  one  without  checking...  safety  first.  I  get  my  cylinder  refilled  in  factory  not  refill  by  cylinder  to  cylinder  in  local  refill  shops.  I  will  ask  them  to  do  fitness  test  next  time  I  get  my  cylinder  refilled.

 Nah  ..  that  one  is  refurbished  cylinder,  similar  to  one  I  have.  Check  below  links  for  specific  to  aquarium  use.  These  are  good,  go  for  lesser  capacity  and  check  in  local  stores.  You  might  get  at  a  good  price.

 As  far  as  I  know,  CO2  cylinder  for  aquarium  use  is  made  up  of  aluminum.  It  will  be  shiny  cylinder  and  you  can  easily  make  out.  
 Refurbished  ones  are  repurposed  out  of  old  fire  extinguisher  cylinder  made  of  iron  that  why  these  are  painted  with  oil  colour.  Many  people  use  such  cylinder  without  any  issue.  Preetam  raised  a  valid  concern  about  safety,  you  can  check  manufacturing  date  and  pressure  test  before  purchasing  it.  
 Aluminum  cylinder  will  cost  you  a  bomb  and  they  are  actually  good.  You  can  get  refurbished  ones  at  almost  half  of  the  price  of  aluminum  ones.  
 
 Others  may  chime  in  if  I  am  wrong  or  misunderstood  anything  about  CO2  cylinder.

 First  of  all  thank  you  very  much  Manish  ji  for  patiently  reply  for  my  questions,  I  decided  to  buy  2  litre  ista  cylinder
 
 http://m.indianaquarium.com/CO2-Cylinders/ISTA-CO2-Aluminium-Cylinder-id-2188029.html
 
 I  am  having  2  feet  tank,  in  few  months  I'll  go  for  3  feet  tank,  what  my  doubts  is  how  much  days  co2  will  come  for  3  feet  tank,just  approximate  data  is  enough.
 
 For  this  co2  dual  gauge  regulator  is  good  or  single  gauge  is  enough,
 In  single  gauge  can  I  attach  solenoid  ?
 
 Sry  I  think  I  am  asking  too  many  questions
