Yes, The lighting if enough of it is supplied is what makes your plants absorb the Co2.. be it naturally or by supplement. As long as you are stocked enough to supply Co2 then the supplements aren't fully needed. Yes they do help your plants but when too many nutrients are available or excess Co2 from dosing when you already have enough stock to create it ..well then there will be issues. Better light(but not too much) increases the absorption of Co2 so that would always be the 1st thing to look at.
