It will grow faster and fend off some algea I would say that like to grow on slow growing plants but depending on your lighting it may be a waste. Tell us more about your set up and dosing regimen and you may get some more/better help.

It's only really worth it if you're going to have high maintenance plants. You might see marginal improvements in growth, but please don't get CO2 just for anubias.

That's what I was thinking. I have 3 2g shrimp tanks 1 with DHG with ingawmi style petrafide wood 1 with sag and cryp parva and 1 stem plants that were sent with some Riccia I got on here. I think the DHG and parva would benefit from co2 but I need to read up on splitting the feed for 2 of the small tanks.

Buy a manifold splitter, you can get it for $20.
