The amount of co2 will typically be judged by the amount of light your pushing. Sorry if my reply is of no help
I appreciate the co2 concern but I was getting 1 ph drop for months when my gh
(and kh) was high. 7.6 down to 6.6. Same issues. I also have a powerhead to make sure there is strong flow even at the opposite end of the tank's outflow

As for recently, the drop checker is always a light green after a few hours of my ph sitting at 6.6.
