Double the bubbles?
Right now I am bubbling 1 bubble per second of CO2.
My pH after 7 hours of this injection rate is about 7.5.
My KH is around 24 dKH (430 ppm).
So, I have about 22.8 ppm CO2.
Would I get 45 ppm CO2 by doubling my bubble rate to 2 bubbles per second?
Or is there some sort of exponential water chemistry thing I'm unaware of.
I just don't want to fry my fish with too much CO2 but I know 45 ppm is safe according to the threads I have read around here. I believe 35 ppm is optimal (eg. plants can't use more than that)
