Hello everybody,

Sorry if this question has been posted before.

My question is, how long does a 5 lbs. compressed CO2 tank last on average? I was using mine, and it didn't even last for 6 weeks?

I thank you all for your input.

You probably have a leak somewhere. Check the CO2 line into the aquarium, and also the regulator. Also make sure the regulator's securely and tightly attached. I had that problem as well and ended up having to get a new regulator, after which the tank started lasting longer.

6 Weeks at 3bps is about how long mine last as well. I use a 5lb.
