liquid co2 help!!!!!

hi all
my planted tank is doing really well but i would like it to thrive! at the moment all im using is a plant food liquid! but my main problem is that i have a breeding pair of german blue rams and i know they are very sensitive to any change in water parameters. is it a good idea to use liquid co2 or just give it a miss? i have never used any form of co2 so any help would be greatly appreciated.

You can use liquid carbon. I would try half doses first, and see if the Rams react. They shouldn't, but just be ready to do a water change if they do not like it.

If they are OK after a week of half dosing you might increase the dose, or just wait until the fry are free swimming.

I would not do the double dose that Seachem Excel says to do after a water change.
