Of one is thinking about adding light or adding CO2, almost always go for the CO2 first, then add more light later if you want even more oomph (and maintenance). ;-)

I've just turned up the CO2 in my 60g with three NO fluorescents over it (total 112W), and now everything is pearling like crazy with only ~1.9W/g with cheap reflectors.
Low light/high CO2 = happiness :)
The only problem is I have tubes slightly shorter than the tank, so there are darker areas at either end (one end in particular)...
