Florish Excel


Recommended Posts

Hi, again I was hoping for some help concerning this product from all the experienced aquarium plant people on this forum. So I have a planted aquarium that is starting to become more densely planted with hopefully some more plants to be added soon. Recently as I have added more plants I have noticed that there is less growth happening and I was wondering if that is because their is less CO2 to go around (I blame the Water Lettuce). Anyways long story short I was wonder if this would be a helpful product to introduce more CO2 with out having to install fancy equipment which I do not have the funds for. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

More plants equal the need for bigger doses of fertilizer(s). I think one of the biggest mistakes in the planted tank community is people often side with lean dosing or adding just enough fertilizer, which often results in chasing deficiencies, and eventually under fertilizing as plant mass grows.

Just as you add more food as you gain fish, and less food when you lose fish.

You add more fertilizer(s) as plant mass grows, and less fertilizer(s) when you trim or cull plant mass.

Edit : As far as the topic of Excel, altho it's marked as liquid co2 (which I don't know how the false advertising is legal). In reality (as stated above) it's an algicide.
