Problem!!! I Just don't know HELP!
45g heavily planted,5.4watt/gal, 2 discus and large school of tetras and some various algae eaters. About 40 fish in all.
20g Heavily planted,3watt/gal 4Dwarf puffers, Algae eaters, 3 clown loaches.
My tap water can be ph7.4 to 6.4 and I didn't know that till recently.
Kh under 10ppm
so needless to say my fish would end up in an acid water with in a day.
I have that fixed now but who knows how bad my fish have been hurt.
If I don't aerate the water when the lights are on the fish all end up gasping at the surface. I have a new injected co2 system but stopped it because the fish are having respiratory problems.
What can I do to be able to inject co2 and not have my fish suffocate.
If the water is being aerated, injecting co2 would be worthless right?
My plants won't produce the o2 needed.
