    Hi all, Im starting a low tech, 7.5 gallon bowl with aquasoil. (Low tech: low light, no co2, no water column dosing but with big canister filter and a rich substrate) I know that changing water makes the co2 levels fluctuate so you want to keep that to a minumum with this kind of tank.. but i...
