Re: Oxyen levels
Someone was asking last week about the diurnal fluctuation of O2 levels in a
CO2 injected tank.
The tank is a very heavily planted 120 gallons with a moderate fish load.
The tap water is pH 7.6 to 7.8, Carbonate is 4 degrees hardness.
Tank water: Temp. 80 degrees Fahrenheit
CO2 injection goes 24 hours per day with no fluctuation regarding bubbles
before lights out pH is 6.85 O2 is 11mg/l
before lights on pH is 6.74 O2 is 8mg/l
There is no surface water movement over most of the tank. Very little at
Carbonate is 3.75 degrees hardness in the tank.
