What do I need for Monte Carlo?

I have a 4 gallon cube tank, I have Seachem Flourite and I planted monte carlo to grow a carpet, I have 12 watt LED 7500k light, I do not have co2. What nutrients do I need to get started? The nutrient part of this is overwhelming. I was told by my local pet shop I can just use root tabs and that would be enough.

I grew monte carlo just fine with eco complete and root tab. However w/o co2 the growth will be painfully slow. You are looking at months before getting a decent carpet.

Can I just use liquid co2 and root tab?
