Corys are perfectly fine with excel. The only time I believe excel harms shrimp is when it's overdosed.

Oh, I thought you could dose it daily...At least that's what I thought the instructions says (online)...Can you not use it daily?

I understand your concern, but an actual CO2 system is over my price range. The DIY system says "not for tanks over 30 gallons."But as I said, the system is out of my price range.

Okay, scratch all of that! I'm gonna get some fertilizer and of course root tabs, and hopefully that will be enough?

If the plants are root feeders (majority are) then that is plenty

As long as the roots are in the ground thats fine


The only time you need to start dosing products like flourish is when you have floating plants or have plants attached to rocks and driftwood (eg. annubias)

Hi BLUElobster99,
Okay, thanks SO much. Today I bought CaribSea™FloraMax Planted Aquarium Substrate. I'm thinking that I will get some Flourish Excel, because it is said that CPD's like floating plants?
Thanks again!

I think I will just get some Java Moss to float....Does that mean I need Flourish or something like that?
