im having trouble getting the right gauge strings because i tune the string that would normally be the low B to the dropped C then G,C,F,A-sharp/B-flat. any suggestions would be greatly aprreciated.
To do a C-tuning on a 5 string, you should actually tune every string up a half step.

An unrelated tip: Make sure your strings are thick enough to cope with the tuning.
