Leave it open. Your just giving yourself something else to clean. Personally an open top tank is more inviting to work on because your not having to take things off.

Green Leaf Aquariums sells some but the tank and regulator I suggested earlier comes with Co2 resistant tubing, seals, and bubble counter.

Yes, fertilizing helps plants get the other nutrients they need and prevents algae blooms from occurring. PPS-Pro is great for beginners. You can read about PPS-Pro dosing regimen in the sticky.
Make sure you follow the Pro as it is easier than Classic. But reading on both would help more in understanding.

I didn't want to leave it open because I have aeration in there and the bubbles pop at the top, resulting in a spray of water. Plus, I've already had fish commit suicide, so I'd rather not risk it for the jumpers.

How much is this fertilizer going to cost me?

I'm getting the feeling that I won't be able to afford this. The guy with the CO2 system hasn't responded and everything else is so expensive.
