Pressurized Co2 help needed
So I purchased a paintball canister Co2 setup.
Aquatek CO2 Regulator with Integrated Solenoid Valve R-78
JBJ brass bubble counter
Clear Co2 tubing
12 oz paintball canister from dicks sporting goods
Ceramic co2 diffuser
Red Sea Co2 checker
So I have the line running down from the tank to the floor underneath my desk (about 3 feet from aquarium)
I can only seem to adjust this setup to 1 bubble ever 2 seconds and that is it.
It seems this might be to much for my tank because it trips the co2 checker to yellow which is supposed to be bad.
It does bring the ph from 7.4 to 6.4 at this rate.
Now a few caveats I do not have the 4DKH solution for the Red Sea Co2 checker just some tap water. So maybe not accurate reading.
None of the livestock shows signs of stress and the plants are pearling like mad.
I am worried I might be adding to much co2 and I am a little annoyed that I may have to turn off the co2 after only being on for a couple hours.
Please advise! Thanks!
