The Rena will create enough water movement and disturbance. You will never see an oxygen deficiency in a planted tank unless the fish stocking is way overboard or some disaster occurs with the biological equilibrium.

The Excel is not something I recommend either. It is a liquid carbon supplement, but it is a toxic chemical that in my view is best left out of a fish tank, as I have written in detail elsewhere.

A good complete fertilizer is needed, and Flourish Comprehensive Supplement is one of the best.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Of course I don't have gourami, I have Betta, and I don't have Angel rams, I have Bolivians, so maybe someone with more experience with these can chime in. I think they're fine!

Glad to hear that you'll be getting more Kuhli (and returning the Dojo?)

Go back and read my last post or two on the other thread regarding stocking, I'm not sure if you read my last comment there, and I *think* I tried to answer some of your stocking questions regarding the gourami there. Let me know if I can help any further, and good luck!
Yes i'm going to rehome my Dojo.He seems to be happy and is VERY active.Just wish my tank was bigger so i could get him some friends:(
I will go back and read your other postings.I don't think i read them
Thank you for your help
