I have a 450 gl. Fish tank that has a builtin filter that contains Bioceramic, carbon, sponge. I also have a canister filter for it that contains ceramic, Ammonia Remover, Carbon and I'm using one air stone attached to an air pump. I already fixed my substrate(Gravel) I filled the water I will let it run for a day then I will add the plants, one Discus 5in and four 3in and five 2in and Cardinal Tetras. My main question is how long should I operate the CO2 for?
Should I add one more air stone?

That's correct, I want to know how long should I keep my CO2 running and for how long keep my white florescent light on?

The light should be on for 8-10 hours, start low and work up from there.... Not sure how to set the co2...... But I am thinking about co2 myself and I would like to find out.


I do know you want the co2 off while the tank is dark, and your gonna want a bubble counter to measure.....
