Default Smoke

When setting up a tank for smoke ,do you set it up just like your glow fuel tank,does it need a vent tube also?

Yes, it needs a vent. I usually set up a 3-line system so you have a way to fill it. Or, you can add a "T" between the tank and the pump for filling and cap it off with a fuel dot
