What's the difference?
What's your preference?
I don't think there is a difference, except in concentration perhaps?
Just use excel cos that's what I got a while ago, but will prob try easycarbo at some stage.
easy carbo becuase that is what i got, i think it is poisonous to shrimp though. either that is or its the TPN thats poisionous. as something killed all my shrimp . not sure about excel though.
Hmm, easy carbo poisonous to shrimp? Not heard that before, might be why I have problems with them.
I've used EasyCarbo at double dosage with my shrimp and they've been fine so I don't think that's the problem Clark.
AFAIK they are the same, even in concentration and I believe the dosage rates are the same for both products too. The only difference was the price; EasyCarbo was cheaper!
i think easy carbo is cheaper than the other one
i've heard excel contains a mild algicide, but easycarbo does not - any truth?
both are forms of an algaecide
I think the dose rate is much the same.
Tanks with minimal plants - 1ml per 100 litres
Tanks with fair amount of plants - 1ml per 50 litres
Tanks with large amount of plants - 1ml per 25 litres
1 capful (5ml) for every 200 L (50 gallons*) - 1ml per 40lt
I dose 3-4ml daily some times 5 and my shrims are constantly with eggs and looking healthy.
I went with easycarbo because it was cheaper than excel.
