diy Co2 how much is too much...
I have a 55gal planted tank, it gets denser every week. I started off with 2 2liter bottles of yeast mix, I have since added 2 more they are all staggered 1 week apart. I know the co2 is in the water. right now im dosing PMDD until I get my dry ferts in the mail for dosing EI and even after that until I get some more light right now im at 1.45wpg (4ft shop light with t12 bulbs) my plants bubble, I need to get a drop checker, but I was wondering really, how many bottles of yeast mix would I need to keep a steady 30ppm of co2 in 55gallons, I have no surface agitation other than the ocassional guppy or molly that splashes around. all the fish at this point are doing thier thing. not gasping or acting lathargic, I was thinking about adding 2 more bottles over the next 2 weeks, I know at 6 bottles pressurized would pay for itself over time, but right now money is a bit tight too many bills so I cannot afford pressurized until later.
