Re: [APD] Bleach sterilisation

I have used Excel for a few years and have never been able to grow Vals. 
They just fade away. Now I stopped using it in one tank and added some Vals. 
They are growing fine and sending out runners. I remember reading a Seachem 
publication that gave growth rates for three plants, with Vals being one of 
them. In this publication, the chart showed a negative growth for Vals using 
Excel. I think the booklet was a guide for planted tanks. I don't have it 
home now so I can't check the title. I looked at their site and couldn't 
find anything on Vals and Excel. I did see that Anacharis is especially 
sensitive to Excel and the Seachem recommendation is to use it only every 
other day if you are growing Anacharis.
