Liquid Co2 question

So here it is, I have a 60L planted tank set up with pressurize co2 and add daily ferts.

I have eleocharis acicularis, vals spiralis/gigantea, anubias, java fern, java moss, echinodorus red frame, echinodorus bleheri.

I also happen to have an easylife easycarbo liquid co2 and wonder should I start adding it in recommended dosage or not?

Do you have a drop checker to test your CO2 levels? Not sure if you have fish in the tank or not but I would check the levels first to be sure your fish don't suffocate.

my levels should be more than 30ppm, heck they could be like around 40, the reason is because my water is sooo very hard around 20dGH. Though the fish don't seem to mind at all and I have lots and also the born like mother[censored][censored][censored][censored]ers! I have bout 35 fishes around 10 mature and 25 youngers around 1-2 month age

Your vals will not do well with the liquid CO2, likely they will melt.
