I'm guessing 463 for msawdey, 464 for mrag and 465 for me and my 2217 and 2213 on my 75 gallon tank.

Edit: I almost forgot about the 2213 on the 20 long.

Yes, me too. Nice job. I have to agree on the sticker not being the best choice. Personally I would have used wood slats, still nice though and it looks better than plain sheet metal.

I also noticed this yesterday when setting up my new NV55 so yes it is important to post the low pressure as well. The bubbles are definitely larger with more pressure. I'm at 10 psi with the 4 bps.

I'm at 4 bps on my 75g going through a water filter reactor and a Rex reactor on two 2213's. Co2 goes on and off when lights go on and off. My dc looks good after about an hour or so.
