Walstad Nano

I have a Walstad planted bowl and I am loving it, so I want to change one of my tanks to a Walstad.
I am curious though, if a Walstad tank would have co2 in it naturally as it won't be having surface agitation? I would love to have some s. repens in the tank.

This is the light that I would be using: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Not sure if it would be high enough. It does seem to cause a lot of Diatom Algae in the tank with it though.

It may grow slow, or at least not in a compact dense way. Still, no reason to not try. Your setup, soil, water, etc. may just be perfect for it. That’d be fun.
Keep plenty of other fast growing plants in there, too.

I can only grow plants when they're completely under water. Everything else is doomed.
