Your excel use may be adding to the problem as it's supposed to be used daily, especially if being used as an algaecide. It provides carbon to the plants, but algae are faster off the mark than...

My nerites seldom pay any attention to supplemental veggies either--though the other snails, shrimp, ottos and plecos certainly do. They do, however, respond strongly whenever I add a fresh wood...
