    Hi everyone,

    I'm currently growing some HC emersed and having a bit of a problem with bubble-shaped algae growing on my substrate (AS Amazonia I). Here's a link to the tank journal.

    I was wondering if I should use some Excel to help curb the algae growth. Would it do any good? Would the lack of water harm the HC?

    If it doesn't, how much Excel should I use? (ie. approximately how much should I add to a spray bottle with 10 oz. of water?)

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I think it's because you actualy already flooded your tank. The substrate needs to be moist.... not soaking wet. Dont know if it would help to put anything in the water, I would say dry it out a bit.
