  • Question: Snails and Flourish excel

    Hello

    As some may know I am currently in the first stages of an aquatic jungle in my big tank.

    As the bulbs are just the standard ones that came with the tank I was happy to find that one of my LFS sell Seachem Fertilisers.
    I have read the most about everyone using Excel the most that is the one I went for but can get the others if recommended

    I have always been wary of using liquid fertilisers with my snails as I love those crazy munchers so I wanted to ask if Excel is safe to use with them before using it.

    If anyone can advise or recommend any additional fertilisers from the seachem range please do

    I also have tetra plant complete under the sand too

    Thank you for reading

    I use just the regular Flourish for my plants and you should know of my invert collection just dose as the bottle says and you should be fine :-) however I have heard some horror stories about excel... well most of the stories I have heard re about it but it seems to be more hit or miss with that product...

      Hello Sean thank you I may try it in Mordin's tank first just to be on the safe side as long as it won't hurt Mordin he is due a water change once I've finished watching NCIS and eating lychees so ill pop in a bit after

            Snails are completely fine with excel. I have MTS, nerites, and mysteries doing perfectly fine with daily doses of Excel.

                Lychees are SO good! I had them growing on my property

                I have no idea Sarah but I'd like to add to your question a bit. How about for other inverts like shrimp?

                  Good question Jonathan and I am curious too as I am seriously thinking about adding some bamboo shrimps once my tank has matured enough

                  I love lychees we don't see them very often over here so I buy them when I can so yummy
