Dosing Excel in a 20gal Long....

I am converting my Chinese Watersnake tank to a 20gal Long. I plan on auto-dosing Excel instead of DIY C02.

Because of the setup, I am using a custom top/lid that will allow for a 24" 65 watt Coralife light. That works out to 3.25 wpg on a full 30" of 20gal tank. This will only be over 24" though.

Excel is only available in a tank for 24 hours--so I will be auto-dosing everyday.

Currently Crypts, java fern, E. latifoilus.

Anyone have any idea where to start the dosage with that much light on a tank that short--height-wise? Initial dose everyday? Regular dose? 2x?

Any thoughts would be helpful......!!!
