Seachem Excel question

Hello folks,
Do you recommend that I add a larger dose of Excel after each weekly water change? The other days will be 2 ml Excel per 10 gallons of water. Just asking if I should up the dose of Excel on water change day after the change?

My progress:
I have been dosing ferts for a week now, and Excel for two weeks, where I gradually increased the Excel dosage up from .75 to 2 mL per 10 gallons of water during the two week period.

My plants were previously showing signs of deficiency and now appear to be perking up. None of the plants look any worse off than they did prior to dosing. Hopefully the acclamation helped. My plan includes doing weekly 50% water changes.


For reference I included a current photo of my tank.:

Excel has a relatively brief lifespan in your aquarium, less than 24 hours. Just keep dosing your regular amount, WC or not.
