low CO2 levels any good?

I've been reading that levels of 20 to 30 ppm of CO2 is recomended.

Is lower CO2 levels any good for a low light?

I was considering adding diy CO2 to my large tank just to get some CO2 in.

Will it be a waste or will it benefit even at a low level.

Lighting is 1wpg, tank is 550 liter.


Thanks
Ivano
