Oh, I forgot something, rather important at that.

Plants that are sensitive to Excel are sensitive to H2O2, and vica versa. So your vals are at risk from both, unless they're already well acclimated to Excel, maybe even to overdoses. Anacharis is considered the most Excel sensitive plant, and I have mine acclimated to the point where it doesn't even flinch at the full, original "One-Two" with 4tbsp. H2O2 per 10G; and neither does any other plant in my tank. So it is possible that you may have no negative effects on the plants, but not guaranteed.
