I'm assuming you are asking bps for C02?
If so, 0 C02 is best!

Well obviously 0 is what is "ideal" but obviously we want to grow some plants that have higher requirements. So maybe someone could enlighten us on a better number besides 0. The people I have talked to who do CO2 with shrimp usually do continuous CO2 at a low rate as to prevent fluctuations in the water parameters and such.

Run it 24/7 like dbot suggested and start out with a low rate. Bps is kind of a sloppy term, but I'm anticipating that you would be just running a ceramic disk glass diffuser in the tank. If so, start off with several seconds per bubble and SLOWLY work your way up. On a tank that small, I'd think you would be maxing out at one bps, again bps is the loose term here. Keeping good surface agitation going to keep your oxygen level up. The breeding will definitely diminish greatly at higher co2 concentrations, so that's kind of your red flag that you're pushing your luck.

Honestly, I just want some shrimp and maybe some babies but in an environment that has tons of plants! I think just making sure they don't kick the bucket with CO2 is a task in itself. Thanks for the tips.
