Re: [APD] Excel

That seems unlikely since Excel is a product that provides intermediary carbon compounds that make carbon available to plants but not algae. It has a small antibiotic affect, iirc, which might be part of what happens with a very large dose. Others have reported that starting a regimen of Excel has caused algae growth to subside but I suspect the mechanism is not overfeeding algae.

Its the same principle as how week killer for your lawn works. It causes it
to go into growth overload. It can't get enough of the other minerals it
needs to grow so it just gives up and dies.
