Hello friends I am new to this hobby however I was following people who are dedicatedly persuing this hobby. Now my question is this ....how much co2 is required for 4 shrimps tank. Approx 28 litre tank I have . Cycled for 1 week. Plants are expanding and growing from last 5 days. Now I don't know about co2 level. I using diy co2 yeast and sugar till now. Plants are healthy and growing . I cannot buy co2 testing kit which is more then 800 RS in Amazon. Any other way to test co2 level. I have pH meter and I have TDS meter ( taken from my own RO parts shop). I am going to add shrimps today night as they will arrive from Kerala to Delhi today.

Please show your tank pictures.
In my opinion, your tank is very small, and plus you have shrimps. I suggest, you do not use CO2 as it will affect your shrimps. But if you insist, you can make a DIT CO2 with sugar 50 gms + 1 teaspoon of dry yeast + 1.5 liter water in a 2 liter plastic bottle. to control the co2, use those small lactic controllers for air flow and for diffusing co2 use a small diffuser. check the concepts on youtube.
Dont make too much co2, as your tank is small. just give a little touch for plants to be good.
