Re: [APD] O2 and CO2 In Solution

Nope. For aquarium pruposes, you can consider the the CO2 as having no effect on the ability of O2 tobe absorbed. Note, however, that a CO2 enriched planted aquarium is likely to have high O2 levels due to the plant activity.

Subject: [APD] O2 and CO2 In Solution

Greetings from Lookout Mountain in NW Georgia, USA!

My very first "newby" question is simply this: does the presence of 
dissolved CO2, at the levels one would normally maintain in a planted tank, 
diminish the dissolvability of O2?
