Bioavailable Carbon for the Planted Aquarium
Flourish Excel is a source of bioavaliable Carbon. All plants require a source of carbon. This is typically obtained from CO2 but may also be derived from simple bioavailable compounds (such as photosynthetic intermediates). Therefore, 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 properties which promote the ferrous state of iron (Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (Fe+3). Flourish Excel is an integral component of Seachem's plant products and is recommended for use with the entire Seachem line. Flourish Excel is safe for invertebrates such as shrimp.

Seems to be keeping my algae under control while I'm still figuring out my fertilizing dosing for my planted tank. I use the correct dosage to not accidentally kill my fish and snails. This is strong stuff! Recommend if you have problems with "beard" algae. It says its good for plant growth but what some people might not realize is how strong this stuff is, so I would make sure to stick with the correct dosage for your tank, it's not really a co2 replacement!!
works great for me, eliminates "beard" algea. Consistant ,predictable results.
