Go according to your dive certification ... Air or TriMix or HELiOx

I use Air most of the time for 50m dive without penetration.

If you plan to do Penetration ..Trimix or HELiOx is the way to go.

:D

for me..I'm prefer Helium for my dives deeper then 35mtr. my own personal preference...

40mtr is 30/30 mix
50mtr is 21/35mix

Safe diving

Equipment can go to those depths, but your body might not be able to..

People like Snafu can afford CCR in M'sia. Initial cost is like buying a kancil! And to use it, is not easy. Totally different from open circuit scuba. Others have to make do with twins :crybaby2:
