Dosing Ferts/ Co2

Hey guys quick question, how often and what anount do you dose excel in you tanks?? My tank is 5.5 gallons, and I need to know how which days I need to dose excel and how much.

Also, I just moved my Co2 diffuser from under the HOB Filter to the side. Before the flow from the filter kept the co2 bubbles in the water for a long time. As soon as they would rise up the filter would push them to the bottom agian. Though I didn't like the way it looked. So I moved it to the side. Do you think im still getting enough Co2 with it placed here??



You can see just how much Co2 is being given off.

It used to be placed under the filter where there is more flow. Now its placed on the side.

Either a drop checker or this chart http://www.csd.net/~cgadd/aqua/art_plant_aquacalc.htm can tell you that. You just have to measure pH and KH.

Nothing good happens fast in an ecosystem.
