While in between Co2 tanks?

For a few days while I get out to get a Co2 refill.. does it make sense to supplement with Flourish Exel or just wait till I can get the Co2 back in action?

Ty for advice guys.

I do. I also turn the lights down and cut ferts down to about a 1/3.

This is why I keep a 24oz PB tank on hand. I actually have 3 spare tanks that hold me over for short periods until I get my main tanks refilled.

Ovt..ty for the suggestion I just cut my lights down by an hour and I'll also reduce ferts.
