Here is an attempt to answer your CO2 question. Method A is to observe plant and fish health and move slowly to see how the plants respond. Method B is to get 1) a KH test, 2) a pH test, and 3) carbonate (solid bicarbonate...). Use "Chuck's CO2 chart" to determine your CO2 and go from there.

Dear AGA members, I just got a compressed gas CO2 system. I know my pH will start to drop once I turn it on. I'm aware that there are all kinds of ways to "buffer" the water but I've never used them before and I'm hoping some of the members can shed light on this for me. If someone can explain the different ways and anything pertinent you think I need to know. How can one keep a soft and slightly acidic without the pH dropping too low? Also, in the last issue of TAG, Volume 18 Number 1, Jan-Mar '05, the last article mentions a variety of different aquatic mosses. I've search the web a bit but cant seem to find them. Does anyone know where I can find them? Also, I just wanted to thank everyone once again who help me last time. You guys were a big help. I'm hoping the members come through once again.
Thanx, Sincerely, Ilan _______________________________________________ AGA-Member mailing list AGA-Member@thekrib.com http://lists.thekrib.com/mailman/listinfo/aga-member
