I just obtained a ph controller for my co2.

My water sitting, well aerated and an airstone for 24hours is 7.6, my dkh is 11.

Should i set the co2 controller to 6.6 with a ph drop of 1 or 7.2 according to CO2/pH/KH table?

I also just acquired amano shrimp and I was trying not to gas them out with too much co2. I am also 2.1wpg.

If starting at 7.6, I would start at 7.2 or 7.4, observe the fish shrimp and then after a few days, look at moving down very slightly. Animals can often adapt but it takes time. I might take a month to go for the full point drop and I'm not surprised when I sometimes have to back off to get them acting right.
