HC and Flourish Excel During Dry Start?

Hi everyone,

I'm currently growing some HC emersed and having a bit of a problem with bubble-shaped algae growing on my substrate (AS Amazonia I).

I was wondering if I should use some Excel to help curb the algae growth. Would it do any good? Would the lack of water harm the HC?

If it doesn't, how much Excel should I use? (ie. approximately how much should I add to a spray bottle with 10 oz. of water?)

Thanks in advance for your help.

how much light are you putting on the tank? watts and photo-period.

i would dilute the Excel in a 3-1 mix 3 parts water. spraying straight excel on the HC would melt it.
