Just wanted to pitch in my 2cents. If CO2 price is what is discouraging you, I went with a diy setup that basically only cost the price of 2 cups of sugar and a packet of yeast and some airlines. It made a big difference with my plants.

Hey there Henri, unfortunately Im out of town right now, probably will get back home, tomorrow evening or the day after. We'll get to your hood then.

As to CO2 I've used DIY CO2 systems and they do help, but the first step is to guarantee you have appropiate lights. No or poor lights and a lot of CO2 will just reduce available oxygen for fish. So one step at a time.
