How much is enough?

Hi, I have just set up a new 35litre planted nano tank and have decided to use pressurised CO2 for the first time. However I am concerned as to how much I should be injecting. I have tried to find a formula for this, but as yet I have had no luck. I am also unsure as to how much light is enough for my setup, most of my plants I think are fine but I have Eleocharis SP Mini as a carpet plant and I am aware that this plants needs good lighting. My setup is as follows:

35 litre tank
Eheim ecco pro 130 external filter
Boyu T8 Luminaire with 2x 8w Arcadia Freshwater Bulbs and 1 x 8w Arcadia Original Tropical Bulb
TMC Expert CO2 Pressurised Set
Fertilisers: JBL Ferropol weekly, JBL 24 daily.

I would be very greatful for any advice.
