    What is liquid CO2 boost? Is it something you add in addition to your CO2 bubbler/pressurized thing (official word, look it up ;) ) or is it something you use instead of the pressurized thing that might not be as good as the actual bubbler but still will work?

    It's a liquid carbon substitute that you add directly to your tank like liquid ferts. It's not as good as injected CO2, and most of the time, it's not needed to have a lush, healthy, planted tank.

    If a plant says it need CO2, can I then use the CO2 boost?

    No, there are many plants that need injected CO2, and a liquid substitute isn't enough.

    Ok, thanks! That's exactly what I needed to know!
