Hello. Well I finally decided to go with a co2 system on my 55 gal planted tank. Purchased a Choice regulator from Green Leaf Aquariums , after weeks of reading and investigating different regulators.
I also bought a Milwaukee MC122 ph controller.
I am still just a little confused with the c02/ph relationship. I know adding co2 will slowly drop my ph to a certain point. I also know the ph controller will help keep my ph at a set point . At what PPM PH do I need to set the ph controller.
1. 55 gallon tank
2. T5HO with 1 54 watt 6700k daylight bulb and 1 650nm rosate bulb. The fixture sits 21 inches above the substrate. 3 inches ecocomplete
3. one aqua clear 70 hob filter and one aqua clear 110 hob filter.
4. Currently dosing Excell , Potassium , Iron , Phosphorous , nitrogen , comprehensive , root tabs.. All seachem products dosed as recommended on the bottle.
Plants are doing great , just not growing like I want them to , hense the co2/ph controller setup.
Any suggestions PLEASE as I am still fairly new to the planted thing. Again , at what PPM ph should I set the controller.
