Wait, excel helps with algae?! I didn't know that. Would it help prevent algae growth on Anubias leaves?

Would something like flourish excel be a good idea? Doesn't it have liquid carbon in it?

Best Fertilizer for a Low Tech Planted Tank?

I just purchased some Anubias, Java Fern, Elodia, and Sagittaria subulta. I have some Seachem Flourish, but is this enough to keep my plants healthy? If not what fertilizer(s) should I get?

I've considered those actually, but I'm afraid that either my Bichir, Featherfin Cat, or my SA cichlids might eat them... Are they pretty safe from predation with their shells and all?

Wanting to add plants to my established tank. Need advice.

Ooh I really like the look of water wisteria. I'll replace the Vals with those. So will 108 watts on my 60 gallon be enough for wisteria, a sword, Anubias, and Java moss? Or should I also use the...

Thanks for the reply. Could you maybe be a little more specific on how to lower my nitrate levels? What kind of "material" would I put into the HOB filter to remove it?
