So, on top the BGA now, added loads of hygro and starting to get good growth all round, the anubias are pearling, all the other plants are growing well now

the co2 goes into a reactor at the right of the tank and the drop checker (i use 4dkh) is at the extreme opposite corner at the left, the spray bar is near it and pushes flow away from it a bit

the drop checker shows light green and the bubble rate is 3 to 4 bps, its a 300 litre tank

shoud i crank up the co2 more, or is this really high? should i fiddle with the reactor?

If u have pearling the plants are very active and getting what they need. Like the saying goes if it aint broke dont fix it.
