Please explain compressed air to me!

Ok so we got hooked up with some 4500PSI air fill station bottles (basically scuba tanks). Now we need to get a tank for our markers. we want to get a decent amount of shots per tank and we dont really need the carbon fiber wrapped ones. What tank would you guys recommend? Also how can we calculate how many fills we will get off of our fill station bottles?

Thanks that answered alot of my questions. I guess i will go with a wrapped tank after all. and im assuming i need 68/4500 or bigger to get a decent amount of paint through my marker. But i still need to find out how many times i can tap off my fill tank with one of these and how that works.

68/4500 would work really well

See my friend has a scuba tank that is 3000 psi and he says he can get like 12 fills off of that. Would this tank get more because its a higher pressure or no?
