    Hi Abdu. Not exactly sure what your query is, but don't be shy to push that bps up to 2 or 3 and monitor the drop checker. Don't skip co2 days, but stick to your schedule as you've outlined in your post. Also remember to replace the drop checker liquid every 2 weeks....use water from your tap and not your tank to dilute with the liquid.

    I run my co2 as above with no issues. Other than the drop checker, you might want to keep an eye on that guppy too....if you see he's staying (hovering) at the water surface constantly, it means your co2 level is too high in the tank. Only then drop the bps, but keep your period the same each day.
