The liquid carbon supplements will harm some plants. Vallisneria is almost always melted, and I believe I have read that mosses donot do well. I would rely more on natural CO2 from the organics in the substrate, and balance the light and other nutrients accordingly.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thanks Byron! That probably saved me from a death of plants! I will have about 3 watts per gallon of florescent lighting and the substrate I plan to use is CaribSea FloraMax Planted Aquarium Substrate!

Thank you again!!
