I like to check my PH especially in the beginning. There are a few methods of measuring CO2 but I found this method to be inexpensive and sufficient

. Fish also have a hard time deriving oxygen from the water when there are high nitrates so I would check those as well.

PH is pretty stable between 7.2 and 7.5 and nitrates is around 10 to 20 ppm I usually only have to run the air stone for about 5 or 10 mins then their fine for the rest of the day
