Types of Metricide

I am going to switch from Excel to Metricide when I run out of Excel. I have started shopping around and I noticed that there is Metricide28 and Metricide14. it appears that Metricide28 contains surfactants while Metricide14 does not. I am curious which one folks are using. Is it safe to assume it is the type with no surfactants? Thanks!

http://www.amazon.com/Metrex-Metricide-Gallon-14-Day/dp/B0015TDIOU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1447360975&sr=8-1&keywords=metricide+14 is what I am using. I dose it as if it was Excel - 2 ml per 10 gallons of tank water. You should not add the activator that comes with it. If you read the customer ratings for this you will notice that they are almost all planted tank users.

That's what I use too.....3 capfuls daily (15 ml) for my 75 gallon.
