I just fished my c02 setup. I put a drop checker in my tank and built and installed a rex grigg style reactor to my pressurized setup. I now have a super fine mist of c02 bubbles constantly coming into my tank. Will this make my drop checker show a high concentration of gas when I dont really have much dissolved c02? Should I care since there is always a super fine mist of c02 floating around?

You will get a high concentration of dissolved CO2 from that fine mist of CO2 bubbles. And, if you have good water circulation going on, the fine bubbles of CO2 can provide gaseous CO2 directly to the plant leafs, which is very beneficial, too. Some of us don't appreciate the seltzer water appearance, but that is the only disadvantage of the fine mist of bubbles. The DC should show the concentration of dissolved CO2 whether you have a mist of bubbles or not.
