Flourite is pretty inert but has high CEC, basically it can store nutrients well. AS long as you are running low light, CO2 will not be necessary.

Define "nice"..., maybe even structure your post a bit so we can easily address your individual questions, and honestly, its your tank, do whatever you want.
