CO2 issues. Again.
Good afternoon everyone, it's me again. Only my CO2 is working just fine this time.
The problem is with the balance of CO2 in my tank. My drop checker says that I've got "sufficient" CO2, but when I woke up this morning and flipped the lights on I think I just killed the majority of my cory cats. They're lifeless and believe it or not, but I can tell that they're cyanotic.
Obviously my ignorance is causing my fish to suffer, so I've been brainstorming a bit and ultimately decided that "sufficient" for plants isn't sufficient for fish.
So, turn off the CO2 at night, lower the BPS, and... That's about all I can really think of. I'm not sure if there is any point to this thread, but does anyone have any tips on finding a balance? Or if there is something I'm overlooking.
This is really something I shouldn't have hurled money at and expected it to work, I failed my homework. >.<
