growth is about 30 times faster with co2 rather than without. the orgaic such as excel is about 5 times faster than without either way it makes a huge differenceAaron beat me to the punch. The difference you'll see in your tank with the addition of CO2 will be nothing short of amazing.
When my CO2 levels are good, my tank is lush, beautiful, and algae free. When CO2 goes bad, even for a few days, the tank becomes full of algae and the plants start to look sick in no time.
This and a couple of other posts are making me think it's time for a "CO2 for beginners" type article here.
