Do I need a drop checker with DIY CO2?
I am new to the planted tank hobby and have started two tanks this year. One tank is 15 gal and the second tank is 5.5. Iím using one 2 liter bottle of DIY CO2 in both tanks. The 15 gal uses two 14w fluorescent bulbs. The 5.5 uses the 27W Hampton Bay light.
From what Iíve read on this forum, DIY CO2 production can be inconsistent. It also seems improbable that I will harm my fish with DIY CO2. If the above statements are true, are there good reasons for using a drop checker with DIY CO2?
