    Tom, you have mentioned that excell is about 1/3 as much as co2.i had a co2 regulator crap out on me and had to send back to dealer for warranty.been excell-erating these tanks. all my tanks have several species of crypts,java fern,anubius and java moss.noticed that since i've been using excell only, plants look question is,can a person use press.co2 in a smaller amount and reduce nutrients to get same activity as excell w/o getting into trouble?i will be getting connected to co2 again when i get reg back.i allready have co2 equipment,and its much cheeper in the long run than excell.all of my tanks are medium light for the exception of one.would you stay with excell? i'm seeing that these kind of plants look better when they don't grow so fast. regards,cornhusker :) :)

    Stuart, I've been using Excel ever since you recommended it to me for my
    small (10s and 15s) killie tanks. I get the 2 liter size from Big Al's which is
    the cheapest (probably get the 4 liter next time). I dose my tanks with twice
    the label dosage...does that mean I'm 2/3 from CO2, probably not :D But
    I'm very satisfied with the growth and health of the plants:

    The pic isn't a very good one, of a 15 long, still learning the settings on my Canon EOS D30. The Hottonia palustris (center) I got from MatPat (thanks Matt!).
