CO2/pH question


What are you trying to achieve by adjusting your pH? You won't increase the
level of CO2 in the water by changing the pH. The pH change is an indicator
used to ballpark how much co2 is in the water. pH buffers are often loaded
with Phosphate. So dumping a bunch of phosphate into the tank to lower the
pH is an invitation for GW (green water).

If you use CO2 and Calcium Caronate to adjust your pH, should you not use pH
buffers like Proper pH, etc?
