How sensitive are the RCS to flourish excel? I have put 2 batches in and have lost both after 24 hrs. I had good luck with the first amanos I put in the tank but am just about finished with the RCS.

You mean CRS, not RCS. CRS=crystal red shrimp, RCS=red cherry shrimp. I've dosed excel with my CRS before and had no problems, but I do not dose it regularly. What are your other water parameters like? How long has the tank been setup?

My cherrys don't mind excel either. Unless you were overdosing the excel was probably not the cause of death. Are you getting them from a fish store or another hobbyist?
1st batch was from a hobbyist and they where small I thought my danios got them. The second batch was from a store and they dint make it either.
