Hi guys, my first post but been reading all I can :D

You may not class this as a proper tank, it is something I always wanted to do so we were decorating and I went ahead with it. Put in a 48" long x 18" deep x 6" width into the wall between the living room and kitchen so you can see right through, it looks great. Only putting in a few small neons, danios etc.

The thing is I want it full of plants and decided to try co2 as I was able to get Size VB, 22kg BOC tank from work and just take it back to get refilled for free ;)

How long is a tank like that going to last in a small tank like mine? I was thinking over 6months?

I basically use 2KG a month on my 720 litre tank, this is on 24/7 and is fed about 1-2 bubbles per second.

Mine is refilled at a local fire prevention centre.
