What are the constituents of this "EXCEL"?

Since it is not avilable at my place, is any DIY possible(Like PMDD)?

> Excel can be used in a similar manner as CO2, if you have high plant
density and moderate to higher light, you can and should add  more(just like
adding more CO2 at higher lighting values).

and need further study), but after double dosing for 8 weeks, it did not do
anything to BBA, nor Cladophora, BGA, Green dust etc.

to add more if it's your sole source of Carbon. The upper dosing limit is
fish health, just like CO2.
