I currently have a 65 gallon tank with a wet/dry filter and pressurized C02
being fed at 15mg/ltr, according to the gauge. I understand the
relationship of pH, dkH, and C02. My pH is 6.8 and my dkH is between 3 and
4. I also have peat in the substrate, which Tom Barr informs me will negate
the pH, dkH, and C02 equation. So, my question is; if I test with a C02
test kit what readings will indicate adequate C02 in the water column?
Also, what exactly are these readings telling me?..i.e what readings show
too low C02, or too high C02? My plants are doing extremely well, but I
only see pearling on the upper most leaves of my plants. It makes me wonder
if more C02 might be helpful. However, when I have gone higher than
15mg/ltr, the pH gets too low.
Feel free to e-mail me personally.
Thanks for your help.
