Even though you don't need a carbon source at this lighting level, you plants would benefit from carbon supplementation. With the size of your tank the only cost effective solution would be Pressurized CO2. I really wouldn't recommend Excel as anything other than a stopgap measure in a tank as large as yours for someone who is in the process of gathering the necessary parts of a pressurized CO2 setup.
