I was supplementing my 75 gallon tank with Flourish Excel at the 
recommended dose for about a month, and recently stopped (because I ran 
out.) This tank also has pressurized CO2. I do notice a slight increase in 
oxygen bubbles from the plants while I'm using it, and possibly a decrease 
in algae.

It's a subtle effect, but it's there. I'm going to be trying it in my 15 
gal without CO2 to see if it helps fill the void... I'll post when I have 
some results.

It certainly doesn't hurt the fish or plants, and doesn't affect pH.
