    Hello ! I was curious about how will be the best way to keep your co2 level in the tank.


    The way my setup works is 24/7 , steady at 6.8 ph with almost no pause for the solenoid.


    Now my question is , should I increase my injected co2 so the aquarium gets faster to the 6.8 point and actualy getting some breaks in between, the solenoid will have a chance to cool off.


    Thanks

    Just a suggestion: you could give your plants a 1 hour siesta in their photoperiod, maybe 2. This will allow CO2 levels to build back up plus control algae.
