I know i am also too dramatic. And I think too much lol May be your mom can confirm that i am right since she is math teacher :)

If you can't, I think you will have better luck getting a 10 gallon bin and dosing with prime in that. That's the downside to using a highly concentrated water conditioner. You could also switch to API's brand. It's less concentrated and also removes ammonia from the tap water, but I don't know about the heavy metals.
You can use the brand new Prime. I don't understand why you think it would be dangerous unless it's after the "best by" date. Unless your water has some real baddies in it, you don't need to age it either. Add Prime and done.
Ok guys you tell me if i am wrong or right. Example:
1) 50 ml treats 500 us gallons-directions use 2 drops for each 4 L (1 US GALL)
2) 100 ml threats 1000 us gallons -directions 1 capful (5 ml) fir eacg 200 L (50 GALL)
3) 250 ml treats 2500 gallons directions 1 cupful (5 ml) for each 200 L (50 GALLONS)
So my point is that it all the same concentration of the Prime just with different directions because the bottles are bigger. But it still 2 drops a gall. for all of them.
I think i am right??
