I'm not 100% sure on my mathematical approach. I based it on division. If anyone has a different number then that please tell me. I double checked and got the same answer of 1/8 teaspoon. You guys are far more knowledgeable than me when ti comes to this stuff lol

The dosing amount I configuered off of the betta safe the bottle says 5ml for 10gallons * 7drops per gallon or 2drops per liter....aqua safe says"10ml\ 2 teaspoon for ten gallons so that would be 14 drops per gallon. I am forced to use spring water with a small amount of fauset water due to the outragiouse ph of the fauset water.

Ok here I go lol. i tried this 3 different ways got the same answer. I'm going to explain the simplest form.

Since 10ml = 2 teaspoons per 10 gallon. You divide 10ml/10 you get a direct answer of 1ml per gallon.

You convert 1ml into decimal, which i advice using calculator because manually its LONG lol. you conclude with a number eventually with .20 with a bunch of numbers. you do not round the number. Once you have your decimal in place you convert that into fraction or you can just for easier purposes again use a calculator. Now heres the tricky part.

You get a indecisive answer of 1/24 teaspoon for your 1 gallon. So i had to break this down.

1/10 of every teaspoon is half of 1/4 which is 1/8. so since the answer is 1/24... you add 1/8 to 1/8... because again 1/10 of every teaspoon is 1/8. then you simplify the answer to that gives you a definitive answer of 1/4 teaspoon. =)

So according to this formula your recommended amount for your 1 gallon is 1/4 teaspoon. Unfortunately I cannot tell you how many drops that is as my Aqueon bottle doesn't have a drop top but pours out.

I hope this helps. Math is tricky and so are these formulas lol. But i figured it was 1/4 because your dosage requirement is 2x the amount of mine. I use 1/8 dosage so i kinda just figured it out by doubling it.

I'm sorry for doubleposting, but for some reason I can't edit my posts.

To furthermore explain the equation, You could simply just have added 1/10 1/10 and simplify that answer to 1/5... when you convert 1/5 to decimal ml you get .98 with a bunch of numbers. rounded off makes 1ML. we know that its 1ml per gallon so thats Very close dosage. 1/4 converted to decimal ML is 1.2... so either way your ok. Either a little more or less. Its ideal

1/24 being above 1/10 was actually helpful.
