Co2 device help?

Okay so I have a 20 gallon tall planted, with a 65 watt bulb, my plants grow well, and I add liquid nutrients once a week after each water change. I really would like to invest in a co2 device but I'm not sure like which one to get and what not, I'm completely unknown to this equipment.

I'm going to be buying of this site Fluval Mini Pressurized 20 g CO2 Kit

And I found this item, and I just want to know if this will be good for my tank and if it'll be good for my plants?

Can anybody give me advice on these things and which one to choose?

This will be really helpful for me!

Thanks for all help! - bubbles

Usually CO2 is added to accommodate really high light levels and more fertilization. While some plants do better with the high energy combo, why do you want CO2 if the plants are growing well already?

I'm a low tech girl, don't know a thing about Co2, lol. . . But reading through the reviews on this, it looks like it's a disposable unit that needs to be refilled twice a day?! I'm not sure I'd go with this one for my first try with Co2, but I have no idea what to recommend to you instead, I'm sorry! Most people seem to go with the DIY soda bottle method at first to test the waters - have you tried that yet? I know there are a ton of how-to's on You-tube, looks pretty simple - and cheap! :)
