Hi,

I recently got a paintball co2 system set up and I was wondering if I should or shouldn't keep dosing flourish excel. Before getting the paintball setup, I dosed excel daily at the recommend dosage, but now I am not sure if I should keep doing that? Would there be a benefit to dosing the excel along with the co2? would there be a negative aspect?

thanks

Oh and my tank is an 11.4 gallon mr aqua with 36 watt pc lighting

I had the same question. For five years I've been using both and just stopped the excel when I switched to led lighting (I know the lighting is unrelated) and noticed an upset in the tank. Less plant growth and a sudden algae bloom. Don't know if this is related to lighting or lack of excel.

Use both if there is algea bloom, I dose daily with excel but only because I have a very low supply of co2 and I'm trying to get rid of new tank algea, look into dry deets, they will save you money
