Hello, I got a question, is it possible to reach a co2 saturation in an aquarium? I am currentling using a pressurised co2 system with a DIY inline co2 reactor out of 2" pvc conneced to a XP1. Its a 37 gallon tank. I have the co2 turning on 2 hrs before the lights come on... during this time i don't hear any bubbles in the reactor and they seem to be dissolving fine. Drop checker is a dark green when lights turn on. When i get home around 3-4pm (co2 has been on for 7hrs) the drop checker is yellow and there sounds to be a lot of co2 in the reactor. Is it possible that the co2 is no longer getting dissolved because the water is saturated with co2 and its just falling out of solution? Any idea what i can do if i turn the co2 down much more then i don't get sufficient levels of co2.
