 Hi  friends,
 
 I  have  a  planted  setup(32G)  from  3  months  now.  The  tank  is  densely  planted.  No  Co2  ,  36w  X  2  PLL  lighting  for  6  hrs  daily.
 I  have  never  dosed  any  ferts  so  far.  I  have  read  that  adding  flourish  excel  acts  as  good  supplement  for  plants  so  I  am  planing  to  start  doing  so.  But  I  was  wondering  if  this  will  lead  to  algae  bloom  since  I  have  no  Co2  set  up.  Please  give  me  your  inputs  on  this.  I  have  recently  battled  brown  hair  algae  and  the  tank  is  completely  free  from  from  it  Smile  now.  Just  dont  want  to  introduce  it  again  in  anyway...
 
 Thanks.

 Hi,
 
 Flourish  excel  is  a  supplement  of  CO2  and  not  a  fertlizer  for  plants.

 Hi  hnabhi,
 
 Flourish  Excel  is  an  intermediate  form  of  CO2  which  plants  can  utilize  and  definitely  accelerates  growth.  Flourish  Excel  dosing  will  not  lead  to  algae  bloom,  in  fact  there  are  cases  where  use  of  flourish  excel  has  combated  algae  growth.
 
 Also,  keep  in  mind  that  increased  growth  will  lead  to  increased  supplementation  requirement  from  the  plants.  Therefore,  you  will  need  to  dose  fertilizers  as  well.
 
 Regards,
 Biswadeb

 Hi,
 
 Flourish  Excel  is  a  great  product....It  will  never  induce  algae,  and  with  its  effect  algae  will  be  completely  removed  from  your  tank.  It  contains  photosynthetic  intermediates  which  will  accelerate  growth  and  your  plants  will  flourish.
 
 Advice  given  with  my  own  experience.
 
 Thanks

 Hi  friends,
 
 Thanks  for  your  replies..   i  guess  my  post  led  some  of  you  to  think  that  I  assumed  flourish  excel  to  be  a  fertilizer..  sorry  for  my  ambiguous  post..  i  meant  since  I  am  not  dosing  any  ferts   will  adding  only  flourish  excel  cause  any  harm  to  the  plants  or  result  in  algae  bloom.  Well  reading  your  posts  so  far  I  believe  it  is  safe  to  start  supplementing  the  plants  with  flourish  excel  without  having  to  worry  about  algae  issues.  Thanks  again   Smile

 Excel  balances  the  CO2  in  the  tank  and  there  by  controls  the  algae  growth.   and  also  provides  the  required  CO2  in  liquid  form  for  the  plants  for  its  growth.   In  case  you  have  some  algae  related  issues  then  it  is  recommended  to  use  Excel...  if  not  better  go  for  a  normal  CO2  injection  method.   
 Excel  is  no  fertilizer...  as  given  in  tom  barr  report  its  just  glut  with  a  reputed  brand  name....  Smile
 Dear  friend.....Flourish  Excel  is  not  cheaper...
 Think  about  it...   Thumb Up
