The CO2 booster is the glutaraldehyde. Excel is a bit better than the CO2 booster. Although, I go with metricide 14 day sterilizing solution instead of excel because it's super cheap.

Thank you all for the responses. i will be dropping the photo period.

Mebbid - Thank you for the advice on excel. I've ordered some and will try it out. Not sure how ferts would work into this treatment plan. I will see what effect the lower lights and excel have before adding anything else.
