Co2 + Light, how sudden is the demand for co2?
Hey guys, I didn't know if I should put this in lighting or equipment, so I put it here instead, hope that is okay.
My question is, is there much benefit to turning co2 on an hour earlier than the lights?
I have 2 timers but one is weird and clicks and ticks all night and I'd like to stop using it on the tank I keep in my bedroom.
The logic behind getting co2 levels up before plants begin photosynthesis makes sense to me, but I don't imagine plants are at their full photosynthetic maximum for the given light as soon as the lights come on.
Is it more of an algae thing or is it for the plants?
If it is for algae, would it be better to run a lower bubble count 24/7?
Thanks for your help!
