I have a 68ci/3000psi pure energy and need to get more shots.... there is no other way around it. I was thinking about getting 2 more of the same size tank because they are only $50 or if I should get a real big tank for around $150. Im really unsure, any help is appreciated, thanks guys!

The only way to get more shots out of a tank is to use a different gun or get a bigger tank. Tanks of the same size should get the same amount of shots out of them if they are both filled the same and used on the same gun. What im saying is that the brand doesn't matter...
Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong ;)
If you need more shots per tank out of your gun then go with a 4500 psi tank and go for volume. 72 to 90 cubic inches should do ya just fine.

If you want more shots per fill, you definitely want to get a carbon fiber tank that is 4500 psi, the increase in psi will give you more shots. Now in determining which size tank, whether it be 45, 68, 70 or whatever else, you really need to take into consideration what type of player you are. If you want your setup to be light and agile then a 45 is great and depending on how efficient your gun is you will probably get anywhere from 600 to 1000 shots. I'm more of a player who likes to sit back and make calculated moves so I don't need to be as fast and agile, so I've got a 68/45 stubby from Ninja Paintball.

Great, thanks guys. Right now I have a torn meniscus from the football season so im thinking a 70 or 90ci will keep me from running around too much. But we'll see thanks!

Larger tank, or higher pressure. Or larger and higher pressure. Everything being equal between a 68/3000 and a 68/4500 tank, you are going to get 50% more in your number of shots from the 4500 tank. I have a 118/3000 tank that I am selling, and that tank should actually get more shots from a full fill (Easier to always get) than a 68/4500 tank (Which might be difficult to get a full 4500 fill).

A 70/4500 will give you alot more shots than your tank right now, and it is not so bulky as a 90/4500.

If you get shot in the jaw you remember you are playing paintball, man the fuck up and say thank you sir, may I have another. - Cdn
