    Hi guys,

    I need your help from your knowledge and experience, i started a new tank, 300 liters/80 gallons and with hardscape and substrate i have around 250 litters of water.
    I have several doubts but my biggest concern is related with co2 and algae.
    I have a ph controller and i putted the co2 to drop my pH around 1. My filtered tap water is around 7.2 and i have pH 6.2.
    The Co2 is turned on 3 hours before lights on and it´s off when it´s lights out.
    My question is: Is it ok to turn off the co2 or should i run it 24/7?
    Also, what your thoughts about starting fertilizing with Estimative Index right now? The tank is one week old.

    I attached a picture of the tank so you can have an idea. The flora is HC Cuba, Monte Carlo on the top of the bonsais, Marcilea crenata on the darkest areas and Bucephalandras.

    Let me know your thoughts,

    Thanks
