back in after years off amateur

Set up three old tanks decided planted on 10 and 44. Plus five gallon for son. only one lost fist in was five gallon on son.
All been a month or so and besides those loss ok. Medium and lower light.
Two planted tanks using flourish excel and flourish. just ordered EI based NPK + CSM+B - NilocG Aquatics as cheaper. Do not really want ei dosing but hope can use for normal dosing cheap? How would that be done?
Also using on planted tanks minimum excel dosing. Know metricide may be the same or not. That is the other question. Is there additives in the excel that tame etc. the glut? Using low dose on excel as lower light.

I use metricide 14 at the same doses as excel, and haven't had any ill effects. If you want to dose dry ferts instead of flourish (good idea), but less water changes, read up on the PPS-Pro dosing model.

If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, spend a couple of nights sleeping with a mosquito.
