Using Chuck's Calculator, your CO2 level is ~38ppm. I'm supposing by "k" you mean KH.

I though K stands for Passatium?

Mr. Dudu needs a KH test kit if he doesn't have one.

Do you know Stephan?
He lives in Malta as well.
I think he could help you directly with CO2.

Or are you Stephan?:-)

Malta is a chunk of limestone with a high GH, it's unlikely you have a low KH, so if the pH is 6.5, you likely have plenty of CO2. But keep a close eye on the pH, get a accurate test kit if you can and if things do not look right/algae etc, generally you will need to add more CO2.
KNO3, KH2PO4 and traces will need to be added as well.

Regards,
Tom Barr
