[APD] Re: Flourish Excel and algae

OK, I'll tell you something that you all know.  I'm a grandma who loves her 
aquaria, her fish, and her few aquatic plants.  I'm not an engineer, I'm not a 
chemist, but I do want to learn more and am not afraid to try something new, 
BUT it's horror stories like this one (and I'm sure that if I searched the 
archives I'd find more) that keep me from CO2 (and I don't even know what that is <
G>)!  Dear God in Heaven!  If Robert Paul Hudson has this sort of thing 
happen, I hate to think what kind of debacle *I* might have!

Growing old is inevitable; growing UP is optional.
