I will have my CO2 system set up probably early tomorrow. I have been using Flourish Excel while I waited to assemble my components. Once the CO2 is up and running, should I continue to dose with Excel? Is there even any benefit to using CO2 and Excel together?

Used to spot treat algae it has use but ongoing and continued use with a CO2 system has shown no benefit for me. Others have reported the same thing if the CO2 level is correctly dialed in. My reference thread for mixing / using Glutaraldehyde as an excel substitute was posted in 2006 and one of the test tanks reported in that thread was also an injected tank. No improvement in growth was reported to happen on that tank.
