    Hi guys I would like to buy 5 lbs co2 tank and refill price is 30 Canada dollar so my question is; if I use for 2bps and 24 hours each day (2 bubble per second) how long I can use this co2 tank without any refilling ?after your answers I will decide to use co2 tank or I will stay with DIY Co2 ! (cause I don't wana refill each month and pay 30$ for refill :( )
    Regards

    5 lbs is around 2kg, so at around 2bps you could get 6 months usage or more. It really is hard to predict however as every tank and setup is different.

    Yeh, unfortunealy its not that easy, but 4-6 months sounds about right.
