I was surfing another board, and came across a new site to buy plants (new to me, as im getting back into the hobby) and I see in the equiptment section they have a Co2 level indicator. they dont give much detail as to what level is "the good green level".

Anyone use this? or something like it? Is it accurate, or a waste of time / money /effort?

Thanks!

If its the one made by A-zoo ( I think that's the name ) its not very good. You get more accurate readings by using the CO2 chart. You should be testing your PH anyway and its not hard to test KH. By knowing these two use the CO2 chart to calculate you CO2.

Most of the PH and KH test kits works fine. I use SeaChem kits for NO3 and PO4. But I have been testing the Hagen PO4 that seems to be working better then the SeaChem PO4. From my experience with the SeaChem it gives you false reading at low levels where as the Hagen read small amounts of PO4.

I have one of those "always on" indicators and like it. Especially after I "tweaked" my needle valve and almost killed several adult angels. It is a nice safety valve, IMO.
