Too much CO2 can very easily wipe out all livestock in your tank. I suggest you invest in a drop checker to monitor your CO2 levels somewhat accurately. Or, you can do what some people do on here and just watch your livestock and plants. Livestock healthy + plants healthy = good CO2.

It's probably very hard to produce too much co2 if your using DIY , you should probably be more concerned about trying to get enough DIY co2 into the tank

But if you have absolutely NO fauna at all ... you really *can't* overdo co2 if it is DIY, can you?
