Here is where a drop checker will be extremely useful. I doubt that you get enough CO2 with that to gas the fish in that size tank. If you have a drop checker, set up correctly, and you are only getting blue green indicator solution, you can be sure you are not gassing the fish, so you will have the courage to increase the amount of CO2 you are adding, possibly by using a more efficient diffuser type. When I first started with CO2 I thought I was gassing my fish, too, but I wasn't anywhere near doing so, as I learned later.
