High CO2 levels

Does anyone have any idea of what the effect of very high CO2 levels are in
a high alkalinity tank?   Say kH 10, pH 6.2, CO2 190ppm???

I would assume the high CO2 would drive CO2 back into the fish and lower
blood pH?   But why moreso that with any other pH 6.2 water?   And what if
the fish likes 6.2?   And what about plants and inverts.

Enquiring minds want to know.     Dave
