6CO2(g) + 6H2O(l)->C6H12O6(aq) + 6O2(g) is at equilibrium
How comes when you compress this system, there will be little to no effect on the system? Would the reaction not shift to the formation of reactants because there's less moles?

I think that since you’re compressing the entire system, both the pressure of the reactants and products are increasing by the same amount, so in a sense, the ratios aren’t changing so there is little/no effect on the system.

On both sides of the reaction, there are 6 moles of gas, so changing the pressure will not affect the equilibrium.

You only take into account the gases, that's why when compressing the system there's no effect on the equilibrium since there is the same amount of moles of gas on both sides of the reaction.
