I have not read that before, I do know that a ton of people have used excel to reduce the risk of the micro solution molding without any issues.

I mix a full dose of excel with the macros and the micros (2 bottles) so that when I dose the tanks on alternate days they get the carbon they need with either macros or micros. I have not seen any precipitation, and the fungus that often grew in the micros is not there.

I think you got your wires crossed. As mentioned Excel can preserve your trace mix. Precipitation usually occurs when you mix phosphates with iron.
