Anxiety creeping in lo

Just purchased an ista professional co2 kit and an ecoxitic e series 48 inch light which I'm using on a 50 gallon tank and adding plants and fish to and hopefully moving everything into a 120 with some discus, spent 900 canadian and was hoping someone would tell me I'm on the right track, I'm almost ready to settle for lies but not quite lol, does anyone have experience with either of these items

Is Ista the one that needs replacement canisters/cartridges? I've no experience with either but depending on the cost of your refills for it a true pressurized system might be cheaper and more reliable in the long run, especially on a larger tank.

Refilling the CO2 tank may be a little more difficult than you expect. You'll need to make sure your kit included the o-ring and washer that paintball shops will need to fill the tank. I actually failed to get the tank filled at a paintball shop when I tried (washer was missing), but I found Camcarb could do it without needing anything extra from me.
