I just hooked up pressurized CO2 on my 29 gallon heavily planted tank. Its currently running at slightly less than one bubble per second. I know that CO2 needs vary by tank, but just wanted to get some idea from other APCers as to a rule of thumb for CO2 bubble counts. I was using DIY CO2 without a bubble counter. I do have a drop checker but its slow to react so I am nervous for my fish . . ..
thank you

thank you jmontee. I am actually diffusing through one of the ceramic disk diffusers. Are they generally less efficient than a reactor? I am using a 4dkh solution. I have a 957 Milwaukee Regolator unit with the stock bubble counter (and have like many people, been strugging to keep the bubble count steady) Since my original post I have started it at slightly less than 1bps, and now I have moved it up to 1.5 bps. the Drop checker is staying green and the fish do not seem bothered. ( no gasping at surface). Maybe 1.5 bps is a bit high, but I have a Eheim 2215 and its spray bar right now is causing some preetty good agitation on the surface so maybe i am losing a little CO2.
thank you
