Paintball co2

Is there anyway to know approximately how long a paintball canister will provide co2 for my 60 gallon tank? I am limited by cabinet height and am afraid a larger cylinder won't fit. I have to be under 14 inches. My DH said I couldn't lay a larger tank on its side. Any input appreciated.

It depends on your bubble rate and of course, whether you have any leaks or not.

Have you thought about putting the bottle somewhere else out of sight and running tube to the tank.
