Default Question: CO2 Dose check???

Hi Bro here, I am having a 1.5' x 1' x 1' planted tank with CRS. How should I check what is the correct amount of the CO2 dose? What is the test kit should be used?

Currently settings:
5 sec per bubble
ADA Soil
PH 6.5
Temp 24 C

Thank you very much.

Don't use the CO2 ppm method since the ADA soil will screw up the pH and KH readings.

Increase the CO2 dosage bit by bit until the fauna appears stress like swimming very agitatedly around the tank.

Stress can be attributed to ALOT of factors. Try to isolate it. It might not be your Co2 altogether. Alot of people incorrectly diagnose the problems. I'm not saying anyone is wrong here, but it pays to be more precise.
