Question

A CO2 system


This is how I am running my compressed co2 system. Am I doing anything wrong?

With a tank size of 55gal heavily planted, approx. 2bps, monitor co2 with a drop checker with 4dKh solution. My solenoid plugged into my pH monitor/controller set to: ON 6.8 - OFF 6.6. I let the system run day and night. Sometimes the co2 runs when the lights or off. What do you guys think, am I running it properly?

Perfect, Don't touch it, if your fish aren't gasping for air, is your drop checker a nice green color? The way you are running you are maintaining a constant ph of 6.7, with no ph swings----can't do better than that!

What are you using to diffuse the CO2?
