No, you do not need CO2 to keep your plants healthy. It's perfectly viable to have a non-CO2 tank. You'll want to keep your lighting low to prevent algae, and dose light ferts only occasionally (once every week or once every two weeks). If you only have five plants right now and are just going to add only a few more, you probably don't need to dose anything if your plants are doing fine as is.
