    i have a spare 20 pound tank, i bought it from a brs member (forget who, but he sold a bunch--a fireman)...if anybody wants it...$50....it is not aluminum, has lots of exterior rust but worked well for me.

    what's the size difference from a 20 lbs tank to a 5lbs? I would like to attempt to cram it behind my stand if possible.
