Flourish/Excel dosing?

I have a 10 gallon medium to heavily planted tank with an AH Supply 36w CFL setup. I'm dosing 1 mL Flourish twice per week, and I've been dosing 1mL Excel daily. The plants look healthy but I do have a slight algae issue (mostly staghorn). Does sound like a reasonable dose or could I be dosing more Flourish and/or Excel?

Well excel is also used to combat algae problems so I would increase the Excel dose to 1.5 ml and see it how it goes from there

It's okay to be spoiled, as long as you don't ask for much.
