I have been running Co2 in my tank, but i think it is too much for my fish. Or they just need a little extra O2. If I have the Co2 running, and an airstone, will they cancel eachother out? As in, will the airstone keep the dissolved Co2 level down too low for my plants to use?
Thank you!

I would if the drop checker was more green. I understand it should be a lime-green if Co2 was at good levels for the plants? Right now I would actually like more Co2 in the water, but my Angelfish don't seem to like it.

Hmm, ok. I'll try changing the solution in the drop checker and see if it isn't just old-does it get old?
I am trying to get rid of algae right now, so that's why I think it needs more Co2. after adding the second Hagen the algae growth seems to have slowed, but not stopped. And my plants are not growing as fast as i think they should be, but i am no expert :p
You are right though, if my fish are having problems then I need to find another solution.
I just find it odd that only the Angelfish seem to be having problems, everyone else is hunky-dory.

And I don't ever get pearling. Lucky you, and good job!!
