How large tank and how much bps for your co2

So I will be installing my first co2 pressurized system tomorrow. I know its all about the water parameters and such but want to get an idea of how large aquarium you have, how heavily planted, and how much bps you are doing from your co2. From what I have read or have an idea I will be doing around 3 bps for my heavy planted 60 gallon tank. I think this will be a good thread if one is not already started to get an idea of what everyone is doing out there for their setup. Will help someone new like me. Thanks ahead of time.

IMHO, BPS alone is too variable and dependent on many variables; pressure, off gassing, dissolution, etc...

To really dial it in, ph drop and kh are the best way to get close to your ppm target...
