Would this Co2 system work in my tank?

I have a 45G tank and Im just getting into Co2. I found that fluval sells a pressurized Co2 kit thats rated for 15-40G tanks. Since its the easiest system Ive found so far, if I bought it, would it work on my 45G? I will still be adding Excel every day or two. The "hardest" plant im growing is Monte Carlo and I hear that all carpets do way better with Co2.

Thanks in Advance

In my opinion, systems such as the Fluval are a complete waste of your time and money. By the time you buy enough cartridges to equal what you would get out of one 10 lb tank of CO2, you have more than paid for the cost of a for real pressurized CO2 system.

Save your money and put it toward the for real pressurized CO2 system you really want.

I've found with most aquarium and pond products if you cut their rated capacity in 1/2 you're usually pretty close to reality.
