Excel is a carbon supplement, not a fertilizer. The two provide entirely different things. And anyone can easily buy Metricide and make 1.5 gallons of an Excel equivalent for $23.

You should definitely make your title more specific. What do you intend to write about? The happenings of your tanks, as well as posts about different aspects of planted tanks?
