Co2 Regulator for 9 Gal - How much is too much

I’ve almost settled on a CO2 Arts system, but have also read about success with a single, nano style regulator (like this https://buceplant.com/products/basic-co2-regulator )

I’ll be using soda stream tanks with a CO2 Arts adaptor.

Is the full-scale regulator overkill for a nano?

A proper co2 regulator is more of a forever purchase. A good one will last you almost a lifetime. The size of the tank is irrelevant.

Not at all. I use a Victor dual stage on a 2.5 gallon

A good reg and NV is especially important for a small tank as it's much more sensitive to changes in output.
