fama co2 chart

has anyone seen the september issue of fama? the planted tank column has a co2 chart which says that if you have a ph of 6.4-6.6 and a kh of 0.5-20 that these are the optimum co2 levels. maybe i misread the chart. has anyone else seen it?

75 gal, Schultz aquatic soil substrate. Filstar XP2 and a H.O.T. Magnum canister filter, 20# Pressurized Co2, Coralife 4x65 watt pc lighting.

The chart must have been butchered by the typesetter. It shows optimum levels of CO2 from 3.7 to 240 ppm. The text of the article does very little to explain it or anything else for that matter. Unimpressive.

Well, at least my algae is pearling...
