I just got a pressurized Co2 system; and the regulator came with an electric valve - should I have it plugged into a timer? My 90 gallon aquarium has a minor Ph issue, but the Ph straight from the tap here is about 8.5 or so - REALLY high. Right now, I have about 2 bubbles per second going into a reactor (red sea?).

How many folks leave the Co2 on 24/7 and how many people have it on a timer where it operates with the lights?

I've been measuring the Ph/Kh twice a day and I can assure you that 2 bps isn't enough to make a dent on a 90 gallon! I'm upping the bps each day (now up to about 5 bps); I don't want a drastic change and/or massive fish loss. Also - it's plugged into a timer now too!
