So I just set up my co2 setup on friday & Could really use some help!
The guy I bought it from is supposed to be great & Very knowlegable but I am so confused after all the info I got I am starting to think this was a big mistake......
ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0.25
PH - 6.2
set up for 8 months home to about 15 fish (Kribensis,Neons,1 bala) I know not the best fish mix but thats a whole other story.......
It is planted mostly new plants - I would say about 65-70% planted as far as ground cover goes.
So I set up the co2 at 0.5 Bubbles per second (for the 1st week as recomended) I got the "Live PH" counter as recomended as well....PH has dropped to 6.2 usually its about 6.6'ish
I added the seaquem neutral regulator as told to raise my PH friday - not only has it not done anything but now my water is cloudy!
So my questions are:
1. How do I add co2 without continuing to lower my PH? I cant possibly add any less then what I am now.
2.I am putting the co2 on 1 hr before lights and 1 hr after lights off os this right?
3. I am battling hair algae how can I still treat this with flourish excel while using co2?
Thanks so much in advance!!!
