Re: [APD] Re: Comments on co2 kit - newbie

You're right. Except you don't need a bubble counter. YOu
can just stick the CO2 tubing into the aquarium and see
what the bubble rate is. But to actually know what your CO2
levels are in your aquarium, you'll want to meausre the pH
and KH and use the pH-KH-CO2 table. A bubble counter can be
a handy rough guide guide once you know how your aquarium
behaves -- but it's not something you need to do CO2.

Good luck,
