What is the chemical replacement for fluorish excel?


I've got a 75, and even tough I don't remember everyday, that little bottle empties quickly.

Of course any personal experience is welcome, but I can also try to search about a bit.

Thanks,
James

It's also sold under the name Omnicide 14. Make sure it's 14 day some of the 28 day has surfactants and/or "a rust-inhibitor to reduce corrosion".
