I am thinking about buying a rimless tank, something like ada 60P (the one GLA sells, it's 18g) and would like to know what size co2 tank would fit best to it. My 20lbs last about 6 months in my 75g so I would like something that would last thesame time on my 18g so I could fill those two at the same time. I'm shooting at 3-4bps for the small tank.Any suggestions?

why not get a duel maifold and run both tanks on the same cylinder?
I thought about that, but the tanks will be on an opposite side of the room, and that would involve a lot of tubing, at least 15'

Consider this. Since you want to add another CO2 tank. As would I. You will probably not need as many BBS as your 75. Get a 10LB tank and it should last about as long as the tank on your 75 @ 1/2 the BBS as on your 75. I have had a 10LB tank on my 15 for almost 2 years and I just replaced it today.

At 15' of tubing your going to need a remote needle valve(long line leading to needle valve at the tank) :)
Thanks Orlando. Well, that breaks the idea of having 15' tubing.
