You can adjust flow on these filters so I think you'll be fine with an AC 30. I had a 20 on a 10 gallon and wished I had more flow. Ran 2 sponges and bio media.

Can anyone explain CO2?

Do you have 4dkh solution in your indicator? If you are using plain water with low kh, the checker will change at very low CO2 concentrations.
