    Tom, you brought up the EI method for CO2 dosing at APC which got me thinking. Isn't it a tad too late if the critters were at the surface gasping for air when we should have notice heavy breathing of fish before that?

    Regards

    Yep, but it's easy enough to back off, I've never lost a fish, but I've had them gasping at the surface, but not for long and only when I have less surface turbulance.

    You just need to watch the fish for the first day, and then watch the weeds for that week.

    Then add a tad more the following week till things look good, you do not need to have the fish gasping to get good growth, no BBA etc, quite a bit before that, but folks do need some surface movement and not add it during the day, I'm telling folks, you can add more gas this way with less chance of killing the fish.

    Are you referring to not adding the surface movement during the day? or something else?
