Too high CO2 is bad for plants and fish. Some fish are better adapted to higher CO2. Bettas and cories are adapted to high CO2.

Yea the Fluval kit is a good start for a smaller tank. Just because there is CO2 doesn't mean there isn't any O2.

Ok yeah good so I want to put that kit on for a 12 gallon long. Will I need to always use Co2 to keep my plants alive ? Like baby tear grass
