CO2 or just Carbon? (RE: [APD] To pearl or not to pearl...)

Well, I'm still confused. I wonder if my increased photosynthesis is solely
attributable to the presence of dissolved CO2.

Is there a mechanism whereby the Carbon (or maybe some other element?) from
the minerals in the water is being utilized to directly or indirectly
stimulate the growth process?
