CO2 Test Kits

Im starting a 12 gallon planted tank. Ive been doing my research on the plants, and want to add DIY CO2.

Where I can I find a test kit so I can test my levels of CO2 in my water and see how much CO2 is being dissolved?
Seems like the CO2 test kits are hard too find?

Thanks in Advance....

All you need is a KH test kit and a PH test kit, and this chart.

This will tell you how much Co2 is in the tank.

Say you have 2.5 KH and 6.4 PH...that means your CO2 is 30 ppm.

Simply as that.
