My co2 set up
Thanks for the replies. I have two german blue rams, an albino rose finned shark, a bulldog pleco, australian rainbow, parkinson rainbow, turquoise rainbow, 5 odesus barbs and 8 common ottos. I just switched to a co2 tank system with a milwaukee ph controler, and an in tank reactor. My pH drops to 6.4 at night and comes up to about 6.8 during the day. I initially had the controler set for a pH of 6.8 but it never comes on - and with my kH running at two degrees, my CO2 saturation is much lower than I need. Most of my fish seem to prefer a ph of about 7 or so. That is why I was considering raising the kH rather than lower the co2. If I decide to go that route, I suppose I would end up adding baking soda to new water with every water change? Is that something people are doing on a regular basis?
