Re: [APD] co2 accident
For as hard as it can be to keep CO2 levels up to par, it's
surprising how long it will stay in the water.
If you use chem buffers to raise pH, remember that the CO2
is only temporary and will eventually go and then you'll
have a pH too high from the buffer.
You can aerate the water with air pump and stone or use a
powerhead to create surface turbulence. Open the glass if
yo have one. Turn your wet/dry on full bore and don't cover
the sump. Do any or all the things one avoids when trying
to conserve CO2 in the water.
