Hey folks, Finally getting ready to add some co2 to a recently set-up tank (29g). Just planning to use the red sea turbo co2 for now, which I understand will generate a fairly low co2 level. Question is: do I have to worry about my fish when I start up the co2? Is there a risk of (a) too much co2, or (b) big pH drop, either one of these being harmful? Thanks!

a) too much CO2 is legit worry, but if you watch the fish to make sure they aren't distressed, it should be fine. I don't think that the turbo can really put out enough co2 to make it dangerous, but it would be prudent to watch anyway.
b) the pH drop for CO2 isn't the same as a regular pH drop, and doesn't have the same effects on the fish. Others may have more info on this.
