Don't use excel, it's mainly an algaecide. Dunno what kind of all-in-one fertilizers you have down there, but look for one, then dose extra iron.
It does! I think its a touch smaller than the Edge, yes? Other tank makers are obviously trying to copy the design lol.

We can't get the shrimp unfortunately, which sucks because I'd love some in this tank. It's illegal to import them. Also can't get Nerite Snails. Snails we have are MTS, Mystery, Ramshorns and Apples.

Okay good to know. We have Seachem and API products at work. I think there is a couple of other plant-related products, I'll have a look when I go to work later today.
