To help fight this algae problem and maybe help the plants grow could I add some Excel? I have a bottle and haven't been using it for a while. I know it melts some plants vals and I've hard anacharis. Would it be okay if i dosed a lower dosage maybe every other day or somthing like that? For instance I would normally dose 3ml a day could I do 1.5ml a day or 3ml every other day? Skipping the initial dose of course. Or are these plants super sensitive and any would melt them?

I have contortionist vals and I remember years ago I killed them with excel before I knew better. But it seems like a waste to have this excel just sitting around.
