Organic carbon for the planted aquarium
Use as an alternative to CO2
injection or in addition to it
Introduces photosynthetic intermediates
Flourish Excel™ is a source of bioavailable organic carbon. All plants
require a source of carbon. This is typically obtained from CO2, but, may
also be derived from simple organic compounds (such as photosynthetic
intermediates). The use of either CO2 injection or Flourish Excel™ does
not necessarily negate the use of the other. Because the processes
of producing photosynthetic intermediates and building onto them
occur simultaneously, one can derive a substantial benefit with the
use of Flourish Excel™ either alone or in conjunction with CO2 . The
combination is particularly ideal for situations when continuing to add
CO2 could result in dangerously low pH levels. Flourish Excel™ also
has iron reducing properties which promote the ferrous state of iron
(Fe+2), which is more easily utilized by plants than ferric iron (Fe+3).
