Does anyone use excel?
So, I have been wanting to upgrade my tanks to NPT for quite a while, but for now this is going to be impossible because of a lot of unexpected bills.
So instead I've been thinking of using excel in my tanks until I can get them set up into NPT's.
I've really not been able to find much online about it other than it'll encourage plant growth by supplementing carbon. I dont want to upgrade to a CO2 system if I am just going to switch to NPT in a few months, but I do want something to help them grow.
Does anyone here use it? If so, what are your experiences with it? Do you recommend it? Any negative reviews/effects? My tanks are all moderate light, is that okay, or do I need to have High light? I read that you should dose every other day if you have anarchis, because it's sensitive, but I have also read that excel only stays in water for 24 hours, so doesn't that defeat the purpose of using it?
That's all the questions I can come up with, but please feel free to add any information you believe I might find useful.
