Mycobacteria--oxygen requirements (Info wanted)

Hello all,
I need information on what percent oxygen to use for growing nonpathogenic
mycobacteria (I use M. smegmatis). Do they prefer a lower O2 tension than
that of atmospheric levels?  Also, do they like added CO2?  Most information
I have found is for pathogens like TB.
Please respond to me privately as I don't often read the newsgroup.
Thanks to all in advance,
