    I have got a ph meter pen as suggested, and a bubble counter, and a tds meter (conductive)
    Now i will do accurate setup.
    For now with CO2 on i am on 5,7 ph
    I will see tomorrow morning how i am without CO2

    Us/m = 340

    On the morning just before CO2 starting ph= 6,7 (kh = 2)
    The new goal is ph drop to 5,2 for try to be sure the CO2 will not be the limit
    If you think that is too much , tell me

    Your reading in the morning before CO2 comes on is not the same as your degassed reading. And the 6.7 reading for KH of 2 doesn't make sense for degassed water. Should be closer to 7.1 or 7.2 or so.

    For instance, right now my morning reading is 6.85, but my fully degassed reading is 7.28. A tank does not fully degas over night. To check my reading, I let a glass of water sit out for three days.

    I only mention it as if you are going to drop the reading to 5.2, you better be keeping an eye on the fish. You may be dropping it far more than you think.

    You are right i think totally degassed is as you said about 7.1
    I can test It also by shaking a closed cup of water

    But the real question is how many does the drop must be to have the security of non limited CO2 system ?

    With about 20000 lumens on top of water for a 1.2 meter by 0.45 surface

    Drop an air stone in that sample cup of water for about 30 minutes. CO2 will be gone.

    i have added a 1900 l/h cannister filter and a spraybar with wider holes
    i hope more filter flow will help with organic dead pieces.
    the flow is ok and with a trim of some plants, it look like that
