What bps rate should I aim for when blasting the co2?

Also, how low should I reduce the photoperiod to? 6 hours once it's filled? (currently at 12 hours during the dry start)

Planning on filling my tank (see the button in my signature for the tank) tonight, and I plan on filling it and blasting it with co2, but how much co2? I don't have a drop-checker....yet. And since I will be cycling the tank for about 3-4 weeks, I will get one as that day nears.

10 hour photo period at least. Especially since your plants are already used to 12 hours.
You want your tank to look like the inside of a soda bottle. Yellow drop checker.

Consider the health of any occupants before gasing the tank so much, of course.
