tom,

i have two 55 gal. tanks . each is using a rena filstar canister filter. i inject comp. co2 into the intake tube. is there a down side to this type of co2 utilization.? filters do not show any ill affects from doing this. am i waisting co2?will i get good saturation?

i've read that some people are not getting good test results using the ph/kh chart method. i use a millwakee ph meter and ap hardness test kit, and sometimes it seems not to be accurate. would it be better to use lamotte co2 test kit?

thanks,corhusker

Re: co2injection

I do not see a problem.
I turn my CO2 off at night. If you have a solenoid, you can as well.

You can test with either method, I much prefer pH/Tritration, or KH test test like the Lamotte.
