Default Cautious with Excel

In the hope of getting my swordplants to grow taller than the anubias nana, I decided to try Flourish Excel in my 29-gallon low tech tank with a 55w compact fluorescent light. Plain gravel substrate with laterite in spots.

What experience have you had with Excel?

Assuming I dose as directed, how long before I can expect to see results? Also, can Excel harm my fish (Simaese algae eaters, otocats, cory cats, neons, glowlights, and 1 big angelfish)? What warning signs are there regarding harm to fish? Also if it says X capfuls once a week, is there any harm in doing 1/3 X capfuls three times a week, for example. In a low-tech tank, I do partial water changes only about once a month. Is that a problem with Excel?

Thanks for any information you can share.
