Buying 1 gallon makes 2 gallons at the same strength as excel, and can be dosed the same as excel once watered down with distilled water 1:1 and runs about $22 on amazon, 2 gallons for the price of 2 bottles. Only issue is that it has to stay in an opaque bottle or else it will be useless

Fishy; you have it on a 75 right? If so, then you probably aren't putting enough co2 in to really make a difference if it lasts that long. This is where a drop checker would come in handy. IMO why run it if there isn't going to be a difference?
My tank is 28 gallons. 30" x 12" x 18"

10 gallon planted - HMDT male betta, 4 peppered corys, assassin snails, Amano shrimp
10 gallon divided bare bottom - HMPK male, 2 VT males
29 gallon sorority planted [journal] - 6 females, 4 bronze corys, trumpet & nerite snails, 3 Amano shrimp

Here's a photo of my new planted 10G betta tank. After a long arduous time spent trying to cycle the tank (I went through every mistake possible), it's up and running and looking pretty good!

Man, there are some awesome tanks in this thread!! Here's the tank I've had for the past year, a 5.5 gallon that is only inhabited by my unnamed male CT.

Front view:l.jpg

Side view:t.jpg

Really want to try experimenting with soil or sand soon, especially in my 10 gallon!

Tanks at home: 5.5 gallon with a male CT betta, 10 gallon with 4 females and an ottocinclus, and a 1.5 gallon hospital tank.
Work tanks: a 1.5 gallon with Nemo, a male VT betta; 2.5 gallon with Blue, a male VT; a 2.5 gallon with a rosy faced barb; a 5 gallon with 2 cherry barbs and a rosy barb; a 10 gallon with fancy guppies; and a 10 gallon with 5 silver dollar tetras!

Kelskels12, what is that lacey plant that you have there.

Likuid, is that riccia on the drift wood? That's awesome!
