    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Another update: I did a water change/ clean today. I also took off the spray bar and diverted the flow of the filter at the stream of co2 bubbles to give better circulation. I have a spare diffuser for when the other one needs cleaning so swapped it in, as well as changing the drop checker...

    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Hi all, Thanks again for the replies. I will maybe try to do a pH profile soon but the API only shows increments of 0.5 e.g. 6.0, 6.5, 7.0.. It is currently sitting at about about 1 BPS after another fine tune yesterday. Just to clarify my photoperiod is 8 hours (13.00 - 21.00) with CO2 on at...

    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Just a bit of an up date. Today I got the bubble count up to I bubble every 2 secs and the drop checker is a medium green colour rather than the previous dark green colour. I will try try to up the C02 a tiny bit more tomorrow to get it to a nice light green colour. PH this morning before...

    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Thanks for the input. I hadn’t noticed that the drop checker was at a wonky angle so I have straightened it up. That’s a good idea about checking the ph Levels before and after co2 goes in as well. I will try to do that tomorrow. I will also reduce the amount of drop checker solution when I...

    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Thank you for the swift and informed replies. Those make total sense. I am just being overly cautious for the sake of the amanos. The Galaxy rasboras were very timid and were so fussy they were almost impossible to feed. I tried 3 types of dried food and some frozen daphnia, but most of them...

    How many BPM of CO2 in 30ltr shrimp tank

    Hi all, At the start of the year I got rid of my RIO 180 and downscaled to a 30ltr (approx. 25 ltr of water) Aquael shrimp set smart LED tank, keeping all 6 of my amano shrimp from the old tank. I decided in the summer to install a new Dennerle CO2 system, as I ran one for a long time on my old...

    JBL u402 CO2 system and Easycarb?

    Thanks for the very helpful reply, Ady34. I think I will keep dosing easycarb at just the regular dose for a while yet. (I was dosing it at almost double the dose before I got CO2) I also read through your brilliant "Dragons Crypt" journal too. That is one of the most beautiful tanks I have...

    JBL u402 CO2 system and Easycarb?

    Hi, I have had my planted tank running for over 2 years now and have always used easycarb and profito fertilser. I have just set up a JBL proflora u402 system and I was wondering if it would be worthwhile to keep adding a small dose of easycarb for purely anti-algae reasons (I have almost a...
