    Is it possible to do the EI method without co2 injection? The tank has good lighting but no co2. Is this possible? If so, is there anything that needs to change?

    Yes it is. Just dose less.

    I do EI without CO2. Decided to dose 50% of recommended dose to see how it turned out. I have done it for app. 1 month now and I have seen significant growth in my plants, even the root feeders have benefited significantly from the fertilizer.

    I do have some algae but manageable and I contribute that to heavy feeding of juvenile discus rather than fertilizer.
