Co2 questions


Recommended Posts

BPS is irrelevant. You want the CO2 on anywhere from 2 hours to 1 hour before the lights come on and CO2 off about a hour before the light turns off. The type of diffuser you use will determine the PSI needed. I assume that's what you are asking in regards to PSI.

You want a 1.0 to 1.5pH drop from fully degassed water to peak CO2 injection. This is the best way to determine the desired CO2 ppm.

Here's a great resource to get you started.
