My paintball CO2

So yesterday I accomplished getting pressurized CO2 in my 10g. Got fed up with DIY lol. I want to check in with you guys to make sure my gauges are reading what they should.

My tank capacity gauge reads around 800 psi as I've read that's where it should be at.

My working pressure gauge says around 135 psi. Is that too much? I've read that it needs to be around 80 or is that for ASA & needle valve people?

Any insight on this would be much helpful. Can't wait to see the results of consistent pressurized CO2!!!

135 seems very high. I have an aquatek and it is preset at 35 psi I believe.

Mine is also an aquatek premium. Should I turn it down to around 35-80?
