Four questions from potentially hundreds-
Question number 1 - What is the opinions of the product flourish excel? Can it aid it the lessening of GSA & BBA? I have an insanely flourishing planted tank that is still mildly succumbing to these algaes - even though the plants and their mildly covered, with algae, leaves are not dying.
Question number 2 - If one desires - once plant growth is substantial - can they slowly weed DIY CO2 from the aquarium and what would the consequences be if the aquarium is heavily planted?
Question number 3 - If I reduce the bio-load a little more by donating two of my larger fish to another aquarium would this aid in reducing the potential for algae? The two fish I have in mind are the two cosby gouramis as combined they are easily 9 inches of fish and they are a little too big for such a heavily planted aquarium.
Question number 4 - Are ottocinclus really effective in the aid of a healthy planted aquarium? If so I understand there may be a high mortality rate among these fish when introduced to aquariums due to their diet and being captured and transported?
I do believe my tank blurb is up to date as well as my aquarium description if someone was wondering what the tank parameters were while trying to answer my questions.

IMHO, I wouldn't change a thing except maybe using Excel to spot treat whatever algae you want gone. Other than that, making sure the plants have enough nutrients, steady levels of CO2 and good lighting will be your best algae prevention.
