Default 20 oz CO2 tank (how long)

Can't equate what a 20oz tank does versus my 5lb tank, but mine lasts me
atleast 3-4 months, up to 6 months even, and it's on a 29g tank, so I would
venture a guess that a 20oz would last less than a couple weeks, if 2 weeks
at all...

Depends on the size of your tank and the bubble rate. For my 55 gallon
tank, it would last about 2 months.

Did you mean 20 ounces, or 20 pounds???

in the US, we see .oz as ounces... if I'm wrong, forgive me... I'm not that
worldly...

Wow, I have a 29 gallon tank, and a 5lb tank lasts me for a year. I'm
using an Eheim cermic diffusor that is supposed to ineffeicient. What
concentration of CO2 are you running in your tank?

It fluctuates bad, from season to season, some times there is an
abundance...

I shoot for 15-20ppm CO2....

My 5lb last for 5 months @ 90 bubbles per minute. I am using home depot
"cheapo" needle valve.

The pH fluctuates based on a steady flow of CO2? I guess if your water
supply changed in terms of KH that could happen.

My water is pretty stable year round at KH 5, and I keep my tank at pH
7.0 to 6.8, giving me ~23-15 ppm CO2, similar to yours.

The 20oz tanks are commonly used for paintball.
Standard regulators will not fit a 20oz tank.
