[APD] Excel = Barley/maple extract?
The press release "Are fish made of Maple leaves":
and the rave about simple sugars as DOC-source for aquatic
plants and algae killer (Seachem Excel) made me think.
Maple leaves releasing carbohydrates. Barley straw
releasing carbohydrates/DOC and "killing algae".
"No direct effect of straw on aquatic vascular plants has
been found in either laboratory or field experiments.
However, in several trials where straw has successfully
controlled algae, there has been a noticeable increase in
the growth of submerged vascular plants."
Good source of carbon = Happy plants = Less algae.
"If snake oil x was such a good algae killer, company y
would have made it comercially available long time ago!"...
