I agree with the comments above. Co2 is not a simple thing since I've been keeping track of it with a co2 sensor.
CO2 is not an algaecide. It's just that you create conditions in your tank to cause the nasty hairy BBa growth. It's always around in some form or another. You'd want invisible form. So keep the co2 stable and appropriate to your light levels.
