Overdosing CO2 kills livestock underdosing causes algae (with too much light). Try your best to keep it 30ppm. Also, monitor organics and your fertilizer levels if possible to avoid too much buildup. I've heard bad things about carbon in filters and fertilizers so you might want to read up on that.

True. Still, I wonder if there's a point where CO2 is essentially at equilibrium of being used by plants and being dosed...kinda like diminishing returns (i.e. more CO2 = more money, but negligible growth).
