Matt,
I was going by the calculation chart at Chuck's Planted Aquaria page. Is it common for people to be at 30ppm CO2 with no problems?

I just want to understand if thats the norm or is it risky? Thanks.

30ppm is prime. It's really the highest you want to go, but it is what most people seem to feel as the prime level for plants. Anywhere between 20-30ppm is beneficial if you ask me. I always try to shoot for the high side though.
