We recommend buying an oxygen tank locally.
You have to get the oxygen tank filled locally because oxygen tanks cannot be shipped full, they must be empty. It usually cost about $115 to purchase an oxygen tank and get it filled. It typically cost $15-$20 to get it filled.
Since you have to go to the local location anyway, it's cheaper just to buy it and fill it there. That way you don't have to pay us for the product + shipping.

An 870 Medical Oxygen Tank requires a prescription first. Once you have a prescription you can go to a local home-care pharmacy and to get an 870 Medical oxygen tank. Ask for a size between 20-40 cu/ft. We suggest the 870 Medical Tank.
A 540 Industrial Oxygen Tank does not require a prescription. You can find these at companies such as AirGas or Praxair. Simply request a new tank between 20-40 cu/ft. Ask for 99% pure oxygen in your tank from an industrial supplier. Industrial oxygen suppliers will refuse to serve you if you are using it for a medical purpose.
You get tanks as small as you need, so size shouldn't be an issue.
Some locations, especially industrial, will make you swap out oxygen tanks. If you do not want to swap, call the location ahead of time and check.
