The problem is the tank will be going on my desk so there's really no room to put a co2 system there. I might be able to set up one of those yeast sugar things. I'll have to see what I can do. The space is really tight though so it'd be difficult.

You can also check out the 16" finnex fugeray LED fixture. It has a PAR value that's considered to be medium light. I have the finnex ray 2 on my 6g but that's certainly high light and i use co2 injection. But for your application, i think the fugeray would be great!

Yup... both threads I linked are examples of no co2.

The first linked thread has a post from the OP that says:

Now it grows fairly compact and the leaves are broader and longer. Obviously getting much more light.
And in the second linked thread, the OP is quoted as saying...

Although... I still think the addition of some ferts, excel and/or co2 (albeit DIY) would improve growth to some degree...

i think I'll use excel to help with growth. I'll definitely go with that fixture then, it sounds perfect. Thanks everyone!
