My regime is pretty close to 1/3 of EI. I'm trying to see if I can get away with just the regular recommend Excel dosing instead of 1.5-2x the amount. So far so good, but my tank is still young. I'll up it if needed.
Depends on the light, cooler temps will also aid in the usage of Excel/Glut and the growth of the plants, growth rates will slow down, so there's more time to develop and grow from the light/ferts/Glut.
