The plants that will tolerate low light conditions will, for the
most part also tolerate low CO2 levels. If you have fairly soft,
neutral-ish water, there are _LOTS_ of plants you can grow without
supplemental CO2. Even with harder/higher pH water, you have
enough options to have a lush attrctive tank if you play your card
