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"

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!

Thanks for the comments!

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

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