    How does Excel compare to Co2 gas being diffused to a 30ppm level?

    I have a 10 gallon and I'm planning on running 55w over it and would like to grow HC and pearlweed.

    Is there a safe dosage rate for Excel that would give me the same results as actively injecting 30ppm Co2?

    For this setup and tank size, would Excel get me medium to fast growth without algae probs?

    I'd say about 1/3 as effective as CO2, you do not see much if any pearling.
    It does seem to do very well at keeping algae growth down nonetheless.

    For moderate growth med-low light, this works well generally on smaller tanks.
