    Hi
    I know this has probably been asked a million times before but I am really struggling to get up to the hallowed lime green on my drop checker at the most I get a sort of emerald green I am using the 4dkh solution. I am using a hydor turbo diffuser aided by a korali 1 and there are millions of bubbles so I know the co2 is making it into the tank I have got the bubble rate up so high that it is impossible to count. Should I just keep tweaking as I have no fish in the tank at present.
    Cheers
    Mark.

    Yes, keep tweaking... and make sure you don't have too much surface movement as this drives off the co2.

    Try taking the DC out of the water. Mine looks lime green when I look at it in the tank, but its yellow when I take it out :)

    Idealy you need drop checker that has a piece of white plastic within the glass envelope or bubble - Aqua-Essentail do one but it is quite dear.

    Regards

    lime green is the colour of a lime's skin. Limeade (which is what I aim for) is similar to the UKaps icon in the tab at the top of the screen :) or like a bottle of limeade colour.
