ok so I have a setup of a 20lb tank which I just got yesterday (supposed to be completely filled)
1. The guage reads 1100 psi filled. Shouldnt it be close to 2000?
2. The guage runs into a Aquamedic 1000 with the outlet of the filter AND the CO2 line coming into the top of the reactor and the spraybar exiting from the bottom. Did I set that up right? (with the thought that the CO2 would make a little bubble resevoir uptop and the outlet water would rush through it absorbing more gas on its way down).
3 If there is a resevoir of CO2 up top in the reactor (small/ maybe a 1/4 of an inch spacewise) do i still have to bubble CO2 in or wait for all that to get dissolved in?
4. Where is the cheapest place to buy test kits since the only one i have is pH, and KH. (follow up q is what are the necessary kits that I need).
Just a little about my tank. It is a 55 gallon with 2 4 foot shoplights overtop with 40watt bulbs (160 watts max but I would guess its probably 30% less in reality). Pressurized CO2 Milwaukee regulator, solenoid and bubble counter; Aquamedic CO2 reactor. Flourish complete weekly dosing w/ Jobes plant spikes in the Soilmaster Select Red substrate. Fish are 5 angelfish, 2 clown loaches, 3 cories, and 8 otos.
