Did you try spot dosing Excell on each plant. If you moved around your tank and used the beginning dose or even 2xs the dose and used a dropper or syringe and applied it to each plant it dies in 1 application. You need to turn off the filter for heavy current areas, but only for about 10 min. It works. I did this and put amanos, mollies, and ottos in my 125g and in 2 days all my algae was dead and in 1 week all the dead algae was eaten by the fish! The excell didn't hurt the fauna at all. I bought the mollies cheap and plan on giving them away.
