    Hi mate, not sure how much difference it would make to the carbon content of your water since you have high BPS presuming of corse that the CO2 is diffusing properly. You'd have to dose quite a lot on your sized tank too and it aint cheap. I'm sure it would clear up your GSA though, i havn't seen the stuff since i've been dosing easy carbo.
