So I read another thread somewhere & did not know about not adding the activator. I used the activator. Do I trash it and start over or use it????

+1 tax Gal
I did the same thing about 3 weeks ago because I wanted to make some
"Good &^*%" (mix your own micro)without buying excel. I definetly see a BIG difference for a small price - which for me is a part of the fun & hobby

Just wanted to report back after 41/2 months no problems noted by using the activator that accompanied the Metricide. However next time I will not uslast time it. I had purchased the metricide 28. I see Tex gal picked up the 14%. Is one better than the other>

BTW between EI, good "stuff*and metricide......my plants look great

I mix according to wets calculator
I dose like so - everyday

40 gal - 20 ml
75 gal - 40 ml
55 gal - 30 ml
26 gal - 15 ml
BBA is nasty - best way I found was to apply with a syringe when doing a water changes. So when 50 % of the water is out I dose the usual amount plus another 10 ML directly to the BBA once all filters power heads etc are off & the tank has zero current. I try to bathe the area in a cloud of glut for at least 10 minutes. The next day its pink :) I have one particular set up that has more BBA than I like but I am sure it has to do with circulation - which is one of the reasons i am going to re scape that tank.
