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.

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 the dose rate is much the same.

From AE;

Easycarbo

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

Excel

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.
