Default nitrogen and c02 mixed tank

will the nitrogen make any difference? I am talking to a guy about buying his tank from his kegorator. It is 75% nitrogen 25% carbon dioxide, is this usable for our purpose?

Nitrogen is not very soluble. That's why people get the bends during scuba. In an aquarium, where its not pressurized, it will just gas out, if it disolves at all (the N2, the CO2 will work fine, just you'll need 4 times as much). If its a CO2 tank, you should be able to refill with 100% co2.

Thanks, I wasnt sure. they say there is not much left in it I may just bleed it out and start with a fresh refil provided I get it from him.
