how much co2 for 8g

After a few years of hiatus I decided to get back into aquascaping and fish. I can't afford the $150 hike in my electric bill so I'm sticking with my 8g bio-cube with shrimp and dwarf puffers.

I won't be stocking the tank for a few more weeks so I wanted to get all the plants established and growing now. I have two 18watt 10,000k CF bulbs and I will dose with ADA step 1 for now.
I never used co2 in the nano tank so I don't know how many bps.

Any suggestions?

Japanese hair grass
Blyxa japonica
Cryptocoryne wendtii

Hook your co2, get a drop checker and monitor your fish for high level. They are simple to use and easy to use.
