[APD] KH goes UP after adding CO2
Over the past week I have observed a strange thing.. when I add CO2 my
water's KH goes UP.
Out of the tap it's 20 dKH. A day after I start injecting CO2 it's up to
24. Today (after about 5 days of injecting CO2) it's up to 29.
My pH is at or around 7.2 to 7.4 which means I have around 60 ppm of
CO2, and that figures because my tetras were all up at the surface of
the water earlier today.
I was injecting CO2 at around 1 bubble per second. Backed it off to 1
bubble every 2 seconds or so.
Please help me figure out what the hell is going on.
Nothing is in the tank right now except a clump of HC floating at the
top (waiting for eco-complete to arrive), some fake plants, drift wood,
and silica sand.
I don't add anything other than aquarium pharm. tap water conditioner to
the water at water changes..
I can't figure out what it could be that is causing KH to go up..
