ok, the sensor is live again. It looks like the responsiveness is getting 1ppm / minute. It's the fastest I've gotten yet. I'll check for leaks again in 30 minutes.

Notice, this sensor is by VOLUME. People don't bother converting to ppmw (weight) like we do in the plant hobby. All of the literature I've read (education research) , they kept their CO2 reading by...

Not really. It's just by weight takes a lot of by volume. It's just different measuring stick.




yes, it's temperature & pressure dependent. I'm taking 70F calculations, sea level.

Are you looking at the right sensor?
It's pretty sensitive and have onboard calibration.
The $85 sensor will give you a max of 40ppmw
The $225 one will give you a max of 135ppmw.]

Oh, I found something interesting. This CO2 setup is more sensitive underwater than floating on the surface. I think water pressure helps push CO2 through the membrane.

I can use my pH meter to measure the degree of CO2 that turns into carbonic acid. It would be fun either way.

I guess the water's pH originally would affect the rate of pH change.

Some good ideas. I only have yeast CO2 with a chopstick diffuser at this point. I gave up on my CO2 tank.

I originally wanted to test how & and how much a dirt tank can generate CO2 on its own.

I've been using fresh air to calibrate to 400ppm. Fresh air around here is around 420. Close enough. When converting ppm by weight, that's a small margin of error.

brine shrimp

Yeah, spiralina has lots of protein and vitamins. You can feed that to brine shrimp and daphnia.

You'll need uv for any free spores and euthanize any with symptoms. It's not bacterial so antibiotics isn't going to help.
