sera co2 test kit?

anybody ever used the sera c02 long term test kit before? it mounts in the tank and tells you if you have too much/too little co2 in your tank

I have used it before, and if I am not mistaken it turns to normal green at around 15ppm of CO2. When co2 level is more that 15ppm it turns light green (overdose). When I used it showed that I was overdosing but still had hair algae and BBA.

Haven't used it.

Looking at your sig...you have a pH controller for your regulator....so why are you wasting money on a CO2 indicator when your pH controller (if calibrated correctly) will always maintain proper CO2 level ranges??

Not right now, unless you need some java ferns.

Sometime in January I plan to reset the whole tank, re-scape, replant, yada yada.

Change my canopy so one person can remove it, and add some NO actinic tubes to enhance fish appearance.
