Oh boy, another forum to read
I've posted this over at my usual stomping ground, Plantedtank.net, but figured I would ask here too because of all the activity on this subject:
Per Seachem's website, normal dosing of Excel is as follows:
"On initial use or after a major (>40%) water change, use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 gallons). Thereafter use 1capful (5ml) for every 200 L (50 gallons) daily or every other day."
When determining a 2x or 3x dose for my 50 gallon tank, which of the above dosage rules do I go by? If I go by the 1 capful (5ml) for every 50 gallons, then a 2x dose for my 50g would be 10ml and a 3x dose for my 50g would be 15ml? Yes? I plan to dose daily for 10-14 days.
I can't figure out how some of you folks arrived at doses like 25ml for a 75g as mentioned in this thread, or others I've read like, 15ml in a 30g, or 30ml in a 18g.
Basically, what would you recommend as 2x and 3x dosages for my 50g? Also, sounds like I shoud expect cloudiness during the treatment? If so, do I stick to my normal once a week water change routine or do a special "emergency" partial water change?
thanks, .. and thanks for letting me join the board!
