hey guys,


i just got my highlight high tech 110 gallon setup, i was able to get the permanent Co2 line plumbed today and want to dial in the Co2. I am using an inline reactor with my canister filter. I was hoping someone could give me a good number of Bubbles per second of Co2 to get in the ballpark of 30ppm co2 dilution. i have no idea where to start, 5bps, 20... 40!?


thanks for any input


this is the reactor im using

For such a large aquarium, you'll probably require a high enough bubble rate that it will just look like a stream of bubbles ("not countable"). You could start off with some arbitrary number (say) 5 bps, and increase from there.

If you have a drop checker, you can quickly estimate your CO2 levels. If not, then you can just watch the behaviour of your livestock.
