Ah, I see the part now about daily dosing. I just skimmed over it and saw about the initial addition and water changes. My fault for not reading any further.

Thanks.

how much do you think a 5.5gallon needs dosing of flourish excel?

I used Excel for the first time last week. Followed the initial dosing instructions on the bottle and I think it's too much. The little algae I had growing on the top of a piece of driftwood died off quickly. It also made the water cloudy.

I also heard that the cap is actually more than 5m. I didn't test it, but it might make sense since overdosing the stuff is known to kill algae. I dose less than what the bottle says, every two days now.
