I always wanted one of these---forget the kids!
Amazon has a helium tank for $48
Toysrus has a tank for $25 shipped to store only. but complaints are there's not enough gas in the tank to fill one.
The cheapest way would be to have a local helium distributer.

You don't have to go buy a helium tank. Just stop by your local florist/Party City/nearest place that sells balloons, they'll fill it for you for between $3 and $5. I got these last year and they are really cool. Definitely a head turner.

Got one of each.

Ok, i caved, finally bought one. I hope it doesn't scare my real ( nemo) clownfish....

Probably not anymore. Big helium shortage and prices are skyrocketing even if you can get it.

FAQ's on Air Swimmers:

I thought the tip of using a clothespin and Velcro was a good one on how to store it.

They use 4.5 Cu Ft of helium
Target has 15 cu ft tank for $49.99, free shipping with 1-cent filler or with redcard free shipping and 5% off. http://www.target.com/p/disposable-helium-tank/-/A-10579153

Well, what did the Hindenberg have in it? Maybe I can get some of that!

We got the shark last year. I was head of the PTO and had a key to the school, so we decided to take the kids to the gym during Christmas break to fly the thing. We got it filled and went over. It was fine for a little while, as we were adjusting the weights to make it get off the ground. Then it hit some kind of air current and starting drifting upwards. No matter what we did, it kept going up until it was stuck in the rafters. We found some tennis balls used for gym class and started pelting the shark, trying to back it up out of the rafters to see if it would fall back down, but no dice. The thing was jammed up there, and in the process of pelting it we broke some of the plastic assembly on the underside and it stopped responding to the remote.

That shark hung there for weeks until a crew came in to fix the scoreboard and fished it out (no pun intended). My kids were heroes- not only did they break into the gym during school vacation, but they left a fun thing for the kids to throw balls at during gym class. Poor shark.
