doubt they would like it. Excel is not liked by most algaes especially when target dosed. Marimo is really just a fancy algae.

Not sure what would happen. I dose my tanks with excel, and it does a great job combating BBA, but doesn't seem to touch green algaes

it annihilates it. I did it in my 1g, the edges start to brown and then it falls apart. It also never recovers from it. I did a complete water change and moved the ball into a cup after rinsing it and its still a soft brown/green glob. Low doses are ok, but even the recommended amount is harsh on the plant.
