I use a 5lb cylinder on my 55 gallon at around 6-7 bps but I usually crank it as high as possible without stressing the fish. Slowly turn it up a little ever 5 or 10 minutes and observe the fish for discomfort. Once you see discomfort/signs of stress stop and put it to where it was prior to signs of stress. Plants will appreciate any extra co2 added.
