I'm not quite sure about this, I did however run this light on my tank for about a week without the CO2 setup and aside from minor issues like some algae/diatoms on the aquarium glass, everything was fine. I guess it all depends on your light duration maybe? I kept the light on for 6 hours a day when i wasn't using CO2, i was worried about algae bloom. The fugeray is meant for low-medium light setup after all.

the CO2 really boost the plant growth though, and I've seen some of the plants pearling
