I have a 29 gal tank with 2 65w PC lights, CO2, and a 50/50 eco and gravel mixture substrate. I am wondering if I crank the CO2 up as high as I can (no fish in the tank) will I get much faster growth then I will with 30ppm? I can dump as much ferts as I need to into the tank to keep up with the plants.

ive always wanted to try this and see what happens ! some one with alot of dough should put a 1000 watt MH light on a 10 gallon, crank up the CO2, plant some hc, and dose like 5 gallons of flourish and watch the hc spead like wild fire:hihi:

Diminishing return quickly approaching 0 return, fellas. Growth is not linear. Take it from the king of overkill.

Can we say overkill?

With no fish extra CO2 won't hurt. However, plants are somewhat limited in their speed of growth. Cells only divide so fast.
