Question DIY CO2 Injection during 'Lights-off

Hello

I was wondering if could use co2 for a low tech planted tank, mostly i have plants that ask low light but i am still using 2x39watts T5Ho for a 55 gallons, I don't wanna use fertz only some Seachem flourish weekly maybe but nothing more, and a DYI co2 system in a 2L bottle. Or that can mostly cause algae problems too? If yea i rather only use some Flourish sometimes.

Your algae problems are going to come from your lighting level (a bit high), not from ferts or DIY CO2.
