Seachem excel vs. marimo balls ?

I was wondering what will happen if I use seachem excel on regular basis in a tank with marimo balls. Does anyone have an experience or knowledge?

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.
