Im still new to this but for a 75gallon tank, the cost of Excel will add very quickly. I think you should invest in a pressurized CO2 system. Like many other memebers says, it will have a higher start off cost, but overtime it makes more sense. Goodluck.

You could also look into this....

http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/...iasts/31615-glutaraldehyde-instead-excel.html

It was the active ingredient in excel a few years ago...... I have a gallon of it and use it often. I bought my gallon for 12 bucks and dose a 120 gallon. Read up about it. You might like it, you might not. Some people are against, some are not. I also have a pressurized CO2 setup on the tank.
