Day 3 of Excel, things are looking good. Ive been killing the filter/powerhead, and squirting Excel from a syringe near the affected areas. I let the filter stay off for about 15 minutes.

I did a nice 50% water change before I did the first dosage of Excel.

I also cleaned up the tank, took as much of the brown stuff out and I also removed a large floating mess on the top...Started off as duckweed and pennywort but eventually became a giant mess ball which included alot of clippings....probably adding to problems.

Im getting 2 new anubia leaves as you can see in the pic. Completely algae free. Are they supposed to be yellow in the very beginning or am I deficient?
