    At me an aquarium capacity of 495 litres-131 gallon, illumination of 12 hours, 240 Watt,
    СO2., kH 22-25, pH 7.6-7.8 fish: 40-50 black molly, 5-6 Ancistrus, shrimps Kardina.
    How many in your opinion it is possible to submit CO2 (in quantity bulb in a second) what to receive saturation 15-20pmm.

    У меня аквариум емкость 495 литров, 131 галлон освещение 12 часов, 240 Ватт,
    СO2., kH 22-25, pH 7.6-7.8 Рыба: 40-50 черная молли, 5-6 анциструсов, креветки Кардина.
    Сколько по вашему мнению можно подавать CO2 (в количестве пузырьков в секунду), что-бы получить насыщение 15-20pmm.

    It really depends more on the type of CO2 diffuser you use.

    If you use a disc, the CO2 diffusers that make fine mist bubbles, then likely around 4/sec.

    But this is just a guess!!

    That is about as close as I can say, generally, folks measure the pH and KH.

    Since your KH is 22-25 degrees (Is this "German degrees" or ppm's?, a target pH of 7.1 to 7.2 will be good.

    If the KH is 22-25ppm, a target of 6.0 or so will be good.

    Note, take this reading and watch the fish the last 6 hours or so of the light cycle.

    вам нужно добиться снижения pH до 7.0-7.2.

    количество CO2 которое для этого потребуется предсказать трудно, потому что оно зависит от типа реактора. начните с 2-3 пузырьков в секунду.

    при этом незабывайте наблюдать за поведением рыб. в некоторых случаях когда вода сильно буферизована падение pH может и не произойти. но это случается в основном при применение специальных буферов для повышения/понижения pH.

    на ночь CO2 лучше отключать. в этом случае можно держать его концетрацию более высокой во время когда освещение
    включено и растения активно фотосинтезируют.

    с уважением.
