about 1bps, but IMHO we cant refer to bps because not all bubble counter has the same pipe size.
And CO2 concentration in water is very depend on diffuser type, kH, pH, temperature, surface agitation, and other things. So I always refer to dropchecker to get better reading.

and the tank average temperature is 25C

Beautiful tanks. That rock is amazing, looks very natural.
Is there any particular reason why you started with higher light and then cut backed once the tank matured?

Plant something...
