Re: pH, KH, CO2


my KH reads at 2degrees, and my pH at 6.8, which gives me a CO2 of around 8.5 
by my readings of the chart. thats with my carbo-plus running almost at full 
strength for two weeks, and with only half the tank planted. (water surface 
pretty still) 

if i bump up my KH (by adding sodium bicarbonate?) then my CO2 levels will 
rise? could i have been getting an "artificial" pH reading because i was 
using chemi-pure in my filter media? (it is suppose to auto adjust pH, yes?)

i just want my plants to flourish!!
