How many bubbles per second?
i have 55 gallon planted aquarium that has 1 amazon sword, 5 stems of hygrophila, 8 jungle vals, 2 bunches of moss ( i believe one bunch is spike moss the other bunch is Christmas moss), about 20 stems of pink rotala, 4 stems of bacopa, 2 stems of temple, newly planted monte carlo, and about 20 stems of macaya. i am wondering how many bubbles per second I need for my aquarium. I am currently doing 2 bubbles per second and am starting to think that 2 bubbles per second is not enough for my aquarium, since my monte carlo, that was in the aquarium for about 2 weeks is not growing. should I add more co2 or leave it as it is.
Other than this what is optimal water parameters for the plant, temple? I have had them in my aquarium for about two months now and had over ten stems at the beginning. I have been losing stems since then and have only had two left. these two stems are doing fine, so far. the water temperature in my aquarium currently is 23 degrees Celcius. the reason why the temp is so low is that i live in Australia and it is currently winter.
