    Hi,

    I have a 65 gal, freshwater, planted tank with community fish, mainly rainbows. Considering CO2. I moved my tank 6 months ago and really struggled with algae. Have kept tank for 10 years but finding out I still stumble with some basics. Got a cleaning crew, started plant tabs in substrate and religious Excel dosing and tank cleaning up nicely. Wondering if CO2 will is worth the money and effort.

    Everything typically grows better with CO2.
    Over time the cost of Excel will be greater than the cost of CO2.

    Good to see another Michigander......I am in Novi.

    I also keep Rainbows.

    There is no comparison between Excel and CO2.

    And with CO2 and good dosing, no need for root tabs or cleaning crew.

    You should start a journal and post more details about the tank (with pictures!). There are plenty of experienced folks here who would be happy to share their thoughts and experiences with you.
