    What about the next statement:


    In the daytime the drop checker need to be green to measure the amount of CO2.


    But also in the night the dropchecker also need to be in the green 'zone'.


    So you don't have any CO2 fluctuations.


    any thoughts/ comments?

    You're gonna have co2 fluctuations (and thereby ph fluctuations) if you turn off the co2 at night. There's no reason to keep co2 running during the night except for wanting the ph to stay constant. Personally I find ph to be more of an indicator than a goal. Something has to cause the ph to change, some are bad and some are inconsequential. I tend to find the co2 fluctuations to be the latter.

    Plant up, get a pH meter instead. Far more useful.
