RE: CO2 Test Kits

You don't need a CO2 test kit if you know your water's pH and kH (kits for
those two parameters are more readily available than CO2 kits anyway; but
you do need a pH kit that measures to the closest 0.2 rather than say 0.5).
Once you know those last two parameters, you can figure out CO2 by using the
tables at http://www.thekrib.com/Plants/CO2/kh-ph-co2-chart.html. (By the
way, the Krib is well worth surfing; I find a lot of answers there to
questions that I had never even thought of, especially on planted aquaria!)
