I completed broke down the tank, scrubbed it out, replaced the old old black gravel with my first try at Flourite and dropped in the Hagen reactor/Red Sea diffuser combo instead of dosing Excel. I was away on a trip for 4 days and when I came back, I had the worst case of green water I've ever seen. Should have taken pics to start a journal.
No dosing yet. Tank's a bit cloudy like new tank syndrome. No great growth to speak of yet but the noticeable deterioration/die-off has stopped. Hoping to turn the corner on growth in the next day or two.
