Re: [APD] Estimative Index for CO2 Dosing - Bah! Bah! Oh Really?

Good reminder.
I blame society for the diff. How can you expect a value to remain steadfast when it's so often taken for granted? Even theoretical constants are subject to revision, notwithstanding Einstein's jiggery pokery with what came to be just another Planck in the theoretical wall.

Read the speaker list, then download the registration form, and get set to join the fun at what promises to be the year's biggest tropical fish convention.
And while you're there, attend the AGA's annual meeting Friday afternoon (2-4pm). This year's speaker is Claus Christensen, Tropica's Managing Director.

. . . Someone mentioned CO2 equilibrium values.  This was beat to death back in
the 90s and the theoretical value for CO2 equilibrium was 0.485 PPM (at a
specific temperature, etc).  However wonderful that theoretical number is,
the practical value is around 2-3 PPM.  Resolution was never reached on
why there was a difference but it was probably due to either
A) biological respiration (bacteria, algae, plants, fish) keeping ahead of
diffusion to the atmosphere,
2) the contrarian nature of aquarium water.
