It's mostly water and glut in not a reductant nor an oxidizer. So it will not unchelate.
Nothing will grow in there and you can dose the ferts and glut daily also.
I like and prefer manual peg style timers, less issues setting them up and programming errors are reduced.
You can get nice small ones and ones with tiny 5 min pegas etc.
I could not find the "fine peg" manual timers. This is what I'd like to use for sure. I do not trust the digital timers. Can you point me in the correct direction? My web searches have proven useless. I don't understand your point on using full strength Excel in the trace mix. If I'm mixing up a 1500/ ml batch of traces for a 34 gallon tank, how much Excel do I use, and how much CSM+B? Sorry, I'm just confused about this... I just don't get it.
