I am currently in the aftermath of my planted 75g crashing.
Red plants died, Monte Carlo fading yellow.
I dispensed the CO2 Gas via powerhead as my tank is 4 feet long.
I believe I had running medium light.
Also, I had a Canister Filter with a spray bar creating some agitation a little below surface water.
Everyday, My target was 30ppm CO2 at about 1 hour before Lights OFF.
I've done some research and found out that Target CO2 levels should come at Lights ON.
IF my CO2 injection starts 1 hour before Lights ON and the rate of injection is about 5 BPS. Then finding my CO2 concentration is about 30ppm at Lights ON...
My question is:
After the first few hours during Lights ON, the CO2 ppm levels should plateau right?
I mean that CO2 concentration will eventually level out and stay there?
I suppose I could test with my terrible API test kits but would prefer some advice from experiences aquascapers.
Kindly please share tips about target CO2 and stability of CO2.
I know it was vague so I had to edit my original post to better describe my situation. Please do read again. I really do need some advice on target CO2 and how to maintain it throughout the photoperiod.
