Flourish Excel - 500 ml
Details
Flourish Excel is a simple source of readily available organic carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is typically obtained from CO2, but, may also be obtained via relatively simple organic compounds (such as photosynthetic intermediates). Since both processes occur simultaneously one can derive a substantial benefit with the use of Flourish Excel either alone or in conjunction with CO2 injection. Flourish Excel also has iron reducing properties which promote the ferrous state of iron (fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (fe+3).

    This stuff kills algae dead. Sure, it's a source of carbon for tanks without CO2 injection, but the big benefit is it's deadly effect on algae.

    If you have the nasty black brush algae (BBA), this stuff kills it and then the fish eat it. If you have driftwood or ornaments covered with BBA, try this: drip a single drop of this stuff into the middle. In a few days, that spot will be clean, plus the path where it drained off. Use this stuff in the water as directed, and algae will disappear over time. Pull out as much as you can to accelerate the process, of course.

    Highly recommended. One star deducted because of cost, but buy it anyway.

      Comments about Seachem Flourish Excel - 100ml:

      Flourish excel makes even a novice look good. What I like about excel is the plants receive the CO2 they need for growth, without the need of a CO2 gas system. The flourish is easy to use with one dose daily, and as far as I can tell it does not harm the fish. In my 75 gal tank, 2 liters last over 6 months.
      I don't know how it can help the plants grow at the same time inhibiting growth of algae.
      I highly recommend flourish excel as it makes caring for a planted tank easy.

        Seachem Flourish Excel is a must for a planted aquarium! I use a DIY Co2 system, and this stuff assists in the carbon requirements. I have noticed more "pearling" and growth using this product. Give your plants what they need, if you want your plants to 'excel'. in the aquarium

          Good stuff for the planted tank enthusiast. A dose every other day or so and you'll never be fighting algae. Best to use before you have algae and then no over-dosing is needed. My 55 gallon gets one capful so a 2- liter bottle will last for some time. So much easier than these DIY CO2 systems.

            I've used Excel off and on for years in my planted tanks. It works really well and helps boost my plants growth rate as well as gives some of them their deep red color they should have in nature.[@]

                  If you are going low tech it is a must have. Even if using CO2, it still adds growth, plus as a bonus it is an algaecide, primarily BBA, and other string algae.

                    I have used this product for several years and am very happy with it. Although excel does not seem to increase plant growth by that much, it is VERY effective against most types of algae. I have also found that double dosing has no adverse effects on fish or plants, but does increase the effectiveness of the product against algae.
