CO2 for java fern

I had a java fern in my 10 gallon and it is still doing good but it has made a lot of little plantlets. They are all doing well but they're not growing. I have been adding CO2 booster liquid into my 40 gallon, in which I moved the java fern from, and the fern seems to be dying as I see more dying leaves on it. What type of CO2 additive do I need to keep the ferns growing and healthy?

Any carbon supplement is better than no carbon supplement.

Its not really a product brand you literally have to set up a c02 gas injection system but this is probablly more then what your looking to get into I always used API brand C02 booster and it worked well for me
