Maybe they can use it and taste it themselves, then tell the rest of us what it taste(burns like hades) likefrom what i read ffoeg doesn't use gluteraldehyde he uses molasses
Only a dolt would even suggest tasting it/let alone taking a big wiff.
Read the MSDS on gluteraldehyde..
Reduced carbon such as sucrose can be used by plants, eg in Tissue culture, and survive a long time without photosynthesis, but adding sugar to an aquarium is not even remotely close.
Anyway, this thread is about gluteraldehyde/Excel, Easy Carbo etc.
It can be DIY'ed and folks have done it.
Personally, I like CO2 gas, it's easier and dose the job better.
Excel is useful for folks having troubles with CO2, or an algae issues, which is also a CO2 problem typically. And perhaps a few that like slower growth than CVO2/low light, but more than non CO2/carbon enrichment.
Works well for smaller tanks etc.
The product is very toxic, I'm even wondering if folks should even use it for aquariums..........the vapor is none too good.
