Co2 question

I have recently set up my co2 and have it around 2-3bbs. My co2 indicator is still blue, and hasn't changed in a few days. Should I add more co2 ? My co2 is at one end of the tank and the indicator is at the other end

what is your tank size? are you using reactor or diffuser? what solution are you using for the indicator? (ready made or you need to mix with tank water) have you check for any leakage?

It depends on the size of the bubble counter. I have a random glass one on my 28 gal and the bubbles are too fast to count and I get a good green color on the drop checker. I would increase it when you are home to keep an eye on the fish, the checker takes a little while to change color.

How is your water movement? Do you have good circulation?

2-3 bubbles per sec sounds low for a 90 gal.

Yes I have good movement. I will try increasing the co2 to see if it helps and that the indicator changes colour at all
