    hi. I read to many sites the rule of 1 point of PH corresponds to 30ppm of CO2. If in my tank which I have 8 PH and 4 KH start to inject CO2, I will get 30ppm at the 7 PH or i will get 30 ppm to 6.6 PH as the chart of PH/KH/CO2???

    You've been told to ditch the chart on other forums yes/no?
    Let it go, target the pH drop.

    yes my friend, but I'm confused because from 8 Ph I go until 6.2 with no problem. (I try to see my co2 limits). How is this possible??

    Every day I start inject Co2, 2 hours before my photo period and I stop 1 hour before the lights are off. The Ph before I start inject Co2 daily goes do 7.4 ( not my final Ph ) with the help of agitation, so my target Ph Drop is from 7.4 Ph?? If it's like this it's make sense.

    Degassed would be your highest pH number.

    Many have tried a higher CO2 drop 2.0+
    I'm sure there's a limit where CO2 becomes wasteful without further growth improvement.
