There are just a few plants that "need" an increase in the carbon content of the
tank water. Any plant will grow better however.
I find that it takes about double the recommended dose of Excel to be enough to
work well. Problem is that it's hard to notice the difference unless you stop using it.
In smaller tanks it's not that expensive to use. But daily use is the minimum that
gets results. Less expensive to get the generic form from Amazon. Either Metricide
14 or Metricide 28.
The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
