Hello,
I have a question. I will start using co2 regulator with solenoid. I will set it up on timer, a light in my tank is set for 8hours daily. How to set it up the most efficiently for the plants and not to harm fish? Please, could you advise?

Have your timer set so that the co2 comes on 2-3 hours before your tank lights and off 1 hour before the lights. Use a drop checker in the tank, ideally you want the drop checkers colour to be lime green when the lights come on and stay that way throughout your lighting period. It will probably mean trial and error with your bubbles per second count.
Preferably set up before fish are in the tank.
A yellow colour on the drop checker is bad, means your co2 level will be harmful to your livestock
