Ken, one concern about CO2 from the people who sell Bloxygen:

"CO2? We use ultra pure Argon because it's totally inert. CO2 is okay, but it's not totally inert and will react with water to form carbonic acid. "

Note that they used to use CO2 in their product along with argon and nitrogen but they switched to 100% argon. Perhaps for the above reason.
