29G Pressur. Co2 EI Dosing

I started this tank around may, recently (4 weeks) I started dosing EI. I got my dry ferts from GLA.

I'm still confused about preperaring the liquid dosing and getting some problems with algea

Filter EHEIM 2215
Light Finexx Planted+ 24/7 (on max 8 hours/day)
CO2 Paintball at yellow (2~3 bubbles/second)

Community is:
3 Colombian Tetras
4 Candy Cane Tetras
4 Neons
7 Amber Tetras
5 Amano Shrimp
2 Nerites (from 4)
Some assassin snails
1 Honey Gold Gourami
4 Otos

GH around 8
KH around 12
Ph stable at 7
Nitrates fluctuate from 20~30
Weekly water changes of 50%

I have Bags of Pho Zorb, Nitra Zorb and Crushed Coral inside the filter.

What size of paintball tank are you using. Do you know about how long it will last?

I have 2, one is 24oz the other is 20oz

The 20oz lasted from Aug/13 to Oct/26
The 24oz is going since Oct/26, it lasts a bit more than 3 months.

That is a relief to know. For I have plans to set up a 20oz paintball Co2 system on my 29g. Could not remember if the 3 months I had read a few years ago was for a 20g or 29g. Thanks!
