Planted Tanks and fry.

I was wondering, would dosing fertilizer and injecting CO2 effect fry growth at all?

Thank you in advanced.

My Pulchers, corries and ottos breed all of the time. I think the fry actually grow faster in my planted tanks...

The only thing I might worry about is overdosing Excel. Otherwise, the answer is effectively no.
