The tabs are a good fertilizer but just note that Excel isn't a fertilizer but a liquid carbon. A liquid solution to Co2 rather and it can be nasty stuff so be careful with it. Also you might want to look into a liquid fertilizer also something like Flourish Comprehensive also made by Seachems. There are some nutrients plants react better to from the water column.

I don't know, I know I have heard some ppl say some species are sensitive to it. What kind of loach was it? Also do you know what your parameters are? Was it the only loach in the tank?

Ok well a Yoyo loach gets to be about 6" in length and needs to be in a group of 5 or 6 other loaches. This means it needs to be in a tank that's atleast a 55 gallon if not bigger.

Stores often mislead ppl. I think most of the tine they are just not educated themselves and just want to sale something. Its happen to bunches of ppl so don't feel bad.

I think in most cases it is ignorance more than trying to sneak a sale.

But yeah, it's amazing what terrible advice you overhear in Pet stores. I always wonder if I should speak up or not, I don't want to become a raving lunatic ;)

Last time I was in Petsmart I overheard an employee telling someone not to change too much water because they'll loose their beneficial bacteria and that they should do no more than 10-15% water changes .

If only it wasn't illegal to slap sense into people
