    Thats a myth,even running CO2 the air is still 20 percent oxygen compared to 0.04 percent co2.Oxygen is created when the air is dissolved on the surface.I run co2 and air stones in a sealed room and never have root issues.

    I wish people realized how small of a measurement PPM/Parts Per Million actually was. You could run 10,000 PPM and it still isn't going to affect O2 in your water...

    1 PPM is a very difficult concept for most dudes to grasp because dudes can't see it and can't take a picture of it and show other dudes on the internet. 2-7 PPM is a little more concentrated, but you can't see that either. To determine PPM you got to scientifically test it with a meter or something that measures PPMs. Without a test meter or chemical test it's no more another simple guess... you know what I mean? But, without a testing device guessing is always FREE and meaningless.

    If you have sensitive taste buds, you can taste the difference in fresh water between 0.0 PPT (parts per thousand) NaCl and 3.1 PPT NaCl.

    In your opinion, what do you believe affects dissolved oxygen in water most, water temperature, air temperature or the partial pressure of O2 gas?

    *** How would you test the DO in water to determine the DO concentration and the DO Saturation or would you simply hope and guess like the average dude?

    how does a really cool dude like J Henry test his DO man? all of us stoned out dudes need your help, man. can you help us, dude?

    If people are having issues with roots in sealed rooms and co2 it's something else they are missing or not getting right.
    Some more test results.
    No spots discoloration or any issues whatsoever

    If you would like to advertise for o2 please do it the correct way.
    Thank you.

    Yes you state a valid point but truth being the hydrogen build up is not high and dissipates in the water most of the gas doesn’t even leave the water and with the hydrogen on the surface that does will return when the emitter is off thus turning itself back into water it is just a fluctuation of gases is all
