Plants can only extract Co2 and nutrients from the water at a certain rate, there is a point of diminishing returns, and it happens at a fairly slow flow rate. Again, these are not corals. I would direct you to Diana Walstad's "Ecology of the Planted Aquarium" for starters - that should be your bible, then go from there. Even if you don't set up a Walstad style tank.
