Going out of town, should I add extra Excel?

Hello. I just started using Excel in my Fluval Spec. I'll be out of town for two days. Should I add an extra dose of Excel before I leave, or just let it be? Thank you.

I have no idea what I'm doing!

Hi hachi,

No, do your normal dose the day you leave and when you return; Excel only lasts about 24 hours in a tank.....dosing 'extra' will not increase the amount of time that carbon is available.
