Okay, I have my system up and running! its just ran into the tank with a tube for now, still gotta get a diffuser. But how can you check the level of co2 in the tank? Don't you test the kh then use some kind of conversion? I wanna say I read somewhere that you want it at 20ppm, is that correct?

It is a drop checker with kh tester inside, and yes it's 20-30 depending on the tanks/plants requirements.
