    This is my 6 foot planted tank. i use a t5HO 6 x 48 inch lighting fixture running 11 hours a day. I inject co2 with a electronic Co2 regulator controlled by digital ph sensor. The Co2 equipment was a bit pricey. But it practically runs its self now. Which in my mind was worth the money.

    It seems like you really do not have a whole ton of plants that require co2. Is there some plants I am missing in the pictures that need the co2?

    i have pretty hard tap water. its at ph 8 so i use the co2 to drop it to 6 - 6.5. ive noticed too that with the co2 my crypts can take high light and not melt. all plants require co2. low co2 levels stop plants from being able to absorb their maximum potential energy form the nutrients and light in their environment.
