PMFED -- Poor man's Flourish Excel drops ??

13871 Views 30 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  Momotaro

Does anybody know the composition of Flourish Excel ?? The website gives no details. Does anyone have an idea what the main source for C might be? Does it contain phytohormones? What does it definitely NOT contain ? Anyone done testing (conductivity, pH, residues after burning, burning point, [maybe even gaschromatography??]....)

Anyone with a "recipe" for something like Poor man's Flourish Excel Drops PMFED (similar to PMDD= dupla dosing drops ??? )

I find it fascinating that Seachem has changed the composition of Flourish Excel.
The new MSDS
(Date Prepared: 28 September 2009) shows - Aqueous solution of polycycloglutaracetal.

An older MSDS

Date Prepared: 07 July 2006 shows Aqueous solution of glutaraldehyde

What I can't find is the MSDS from 2008, even in the WayBack machine.
That one listed a x.x% Aqueous solution of glutaraldehyde
Such is life when one attempts to save money.
