New CO2 tank & clean diffuser

I'm grabbing a new CO2 tank today and have my ceramic diffuser soaking to get it all nice and clean. This is my 3rd CO2 tank that I've gone through and I'm still not 100% confident when replacing. Since my diffuser will be running like new, should I tune down the amount of CO2 pumping into the tank and ramp up like the first time? I did this when I replaced the tank the first time, and it is a pain to go through the whole CO2 tuning again.

before you cleaned your diffuser were the bubbles coming out as a fine mist or big bubbles that popped at the surface? if all the co2 was being diffused before you cleaned it then you shouldn't have to adjust anything. if it was so dirty that it wasn't causing the bubbles to be bigger and reaching the surface then you'll want to start the co2 slow and work your way back up to whatever bubble per second you were at
