Dosing question

planning to buy liquid fertilizer... somewhat soon. So right now I only have paintball co2.

my question is do I still need my co2 if I dose my tank with fertilizers? i.e. Pfertz N, P, K, M fertilizers?

or co2 is a must either with ferts or not?

Light+co2+fert=happy plants

If you don't have high maintenance plants you don't need co2 or ferts, just a water change. But I'd keep it on since it makes quite a bit of Diffy. Just be careful with ferts n over dozing.

Too much light & fert= algae
Too much co2= dead fish.
