Time trouble with liquid co2 lighting
I'm starting a 5G planted tank tomorrow at granny's workshop. Light is moderately high with EI dosing and liquid carbon.
Problem is that I do my daily EI and liquid carbon dosing at 7am and light doesn't start til 10am. Will the water still contain carbon by the time light comes on? I'm thinking that aeration from the filter might remove the carbon but I'm not sure.
Also lights will be on 12 hours daily til the shop closes and I can't change that. If I provide sufficient nutrients and co2(assuming the answer to above question is positive), is it possible to avoid algae bloom?
