I'm kinda in the same boat al my plants seem to grow grand without I think once you have easy plants right light and you keep on top of your water changes I don't really see any need to buy some more.

I think because the tank and plants are so used to the easy carbo dosage that a sudden stop will possibly cause algae to start growing...

It also depends on what type of algae eating critters you have in your tank...SAEs specialise in Filament algae, Ottos specialise in Diatoms, Nerites in green spot etc etc etc...

In my opinion if your plant growth is good and your algae growth is minimal it tells me that the tank is in a stable condition....A sudden change of routine will possibly throw things out of sync and the usual result when that happens is algae growth....

And yes Easy Carbo is not a true source of carbon as the makers claim...Its actually a strong chemical that helps plants absorb Co2 better whichin turn helps with plant growth....The plants then use up NitrAte and Phosphates (along with other nutrients) better which inhibits algae....

The ideal scenario in a planted tank is the use of injected co2 along with Easy Carbo and loads of Ferts...But then you are in Hi Tech Jungle land....Which is a whole different ball game....

Moral of the story...If its not broken dont fix it....
