Ph - 6.6 with Co2 is on, 7 or 7.1 when it's off
This is not a full point pH drop, how is 30ppm CO2 justified?
Please don't answer the pH vs. KH chart.
Drop checker and ph/kh chart. I'll have to double check the ph tomorrow morning before the co2 turns on. It's always fully degassed by then.

Yes, its not heavily planted. How much should I dose then? I've tried laying off or adding more but I still have random ass issues that seem like every deficiency in one.
