Some CO2 realated questions

Is Flourish Excel just as good as Pressurized CO2?
If I only use Excel can I use air driven filtration?
How do I measure out .2 ml of excel for my 2.5 Gallon tank?
On a side note. Will java moss grow well in an unfiltered tank with no current?

0.2mL can easily be measured using an insulin syringe (it really works). Might be able to do so using a 3mL syringe as well, but would be less accurate.

Good luck finding just one.

Flourish Excel no where near matches pressurized CO2.

It's best to have filtration with moss, it tends to collect things.
