There are permanent attachments of CO2 you can place inside the fish tank glass reading blue not enough, green fine and yellow too much. There is wide range of brands to choose from but I personally use Dupla permanent CO2 test kit.

Or if you have a pH test kit and a KH test kit, and have no peat in your filter, you can use this to get an approximation of how much CO2 is present in your tank simply by matching the two on a grid.
