Seachem

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). Flourish Excel? is an integral component of Seachem?s plant products and is recommended for use with the entire Flourish? line as well as our Flourite? and Onyx? gravels. Contains no phosphate or nitrate.

DIRECTIONS: On initial use or after a major (> 40%) water change, use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 gallons*). Thereafter use 1?capful for every 200 L (50 gallons*) daily or every other day. For smaller dosing please note that each cap thread is approximately 1 mL. Note: The 2 & 4 L container?s cap is 10 mL. DO NOT OVERDOSE! IN CASE OF EYE EXPOSURE, PROMPTLY & THOROUGHLY WASH EYES WITH WATER & SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION.

  • i500 mL / 17 fl. oz. (Treats 20000 L (5290 US Gallons))

REVIEW
I have been using this product for a couple of years. It has the benefits of CO2 and at the same time it keeps nuisance algae in check. I dose a capful every other day to my 80 gallon fresh water planted tank.

REVIEW
I use this in cherry shrimp tanks that don't have CO2 and it seems to work great for me and doesn't seem to have any adverse effects on the shrimp. Highly recommend.

My plants have done very well with this product. I have fish and so cannot use carbon dioxide and this has been a great substitute.

Brown/Black Algae

REVIEW
Used as an off label treatment, along with a phosphate reducer, killed off a stubborn brown/black algae infestation in my 55 gallon fresh water aquarium in 7-10 days, without injury to my fish. Will keep a supply of this around !
