Dear All,

Did any one tried to use Glutaraldehyde as a source of CO2 to Aquariums. If yes then at what dose and does it work ?

Thanks.
Deba....

Yes, there have been several reports on various forums about doing this. Unfortunately, glutaraldehyde is pretty potent stuff, and playing with it without really good knowledge about how to handle it isn't a good idea. Excel is expensive, but not that expensive.
