Excel + CO2

I've seen some folks here using both compressed CO2 and excel together. Is there an added benefit of the excel? I would have thought it not necessary with compressed CO2. Thx!

Perhaps they are using the Excel partially to control algae. It will kill algae, but (IME) not at the level that is generally dosed. Gotta over dose to kill algae, then you risk certain plants and livestock that cannot handle higher levels.
