Flourish Excel question???

Just curious. If I'm not mistaken, Excel is essentially a liquid CO2 substitute. Correct me if I'm wrong, please. Is it a waste of time and money to use it in conjunction with pressurized CO2?

I'm running an 18" Rex reactor on my 90g tank and it's silent. Or at least I can't hear it over my filter (also very quiet).

Picked this one up.

Quiet One Lifegard Aquarium Pump, 991-Gallon Per Hour
And I dig it. Very quiet and has adjustable flow. I've got the valve open all the way and the flow is perfect for my 90 gallon.
