This is always a good first step (though maybe without the eyes bleeding )


In terms of lighting, you may be able to find someone that already has taken PAR measurements for the Chihiro light.


For CO2, what you are doing is fine for now. If you want to (roughly) estimate your CO2 levels, you can always invest or DIY a drop checker and fill it with 4 dkH reference solution. The indicator (bromothymol blue) will turn an emerald green when you are in the ballpark of 30 ppm of CO2.
