Co2 bubble count

Can anyone tell me what the bubble count should be on a 45 gal fresh water tank?

Thanks in advance

Depends on stocking levels, lights and plants. Abd if you use ferts or not. Normally its around 1-4 bubbles per second depending if it low to high tech.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Just started this tank out. Right now I have 10 Tetras and, 5 Zebra Danios; 6 Cherry Shrimp and 3 Cory's. I'd consider it low tech as I've only a couple Amazon Sword plants and a Ludwiga. I intend to keep it stocked with the smaller fresh water fish. Intend to add three guppies and three Swordtails. I am using ferts at this time. The bubble count at this time is 120 per min.

Yeah that should be fine. Have you thought of purchasing a drop checker to ensure that the tank has ample O2?

Yup. Got one of those. I think I need more solution. Will have to check. Just for your information; I had a major catastrophe about six months ago. I had a valve fail on my Co2 setup and poisoned over 23 fish. So I'm kind of over cautious now! I live in Northern BC; Canada. Tropical fish are not cheap up here!
