Scott is right about the CO2 but that usually doesn't cause a problem in most systems due to the amount of aeration that folks have in their systems (air stones or siphons that kick off and drain water resulting in splashing or spray bars, etc.) The CO2 normalizes pretty quick under those scenarios. There are of course other ways to design your system where you might need to add an outgassing component to prevent accumulations of CO2 as it can cause fish health issues.

And yes, it can require doing some math if you want to accurately control pH and the buffer system. I have noticed over time that my systems tend to sit in the 6.5 range when alkalinity is in the 18-20 ppm range. This tends to be much easier to control the larger your system is from my own personal observations.
