I'm fairly new to the hobby but as much as I understood filter should run 24×7, co2 system should run as long as the light is on and lights should be run 6-8hours a day... Preferably during the daytime. No two tanks are same and the only way to find the perfect balance of everything in your tank is by trial and error method.
