Hey guys, i don't know if anyone else has had this on their mind but it's been bothering me. Since i have my betta in a 2.5 gal tank and only do 1 litre(about 10%) water changes twice a week, I've been wondering just how much API Stress Coat Plus
should i be using per litre -- instead of gallon.
So i went ahead and did all the math, but i did it all for the NORMAL dose -- like the instructions say, go ahead and double dose if you really have to. Here's what i got:
5.000 mL = 1 tsp used for 10 gal (38 L)
2.500 mL = 1/2 tsp used for 5 gal (19 L)
1.250 mL = 1/4 tsp used for 2.5 gal (9.5 L)
0.620 mL = 1/8 tsp used for 1.25 gal (4.75 L)
0.313 mL = 1/16 tsp used for 0.62 gal (2.4 L)
0.156 mL = 1/32 tsp used for 0.313 gal (1.2 L)
1 gal = 3.8 L
1 mL = 14-15 drops (1 drop = 0.075 mL)
So there ya go for every litre of water you should use roughly 1/32 tsp (2-3 drops) of API Stress Coat Plus OR for every gallon use around 1/8 tsp (8-10 drops).
You can measure it all though Drops by using teardrop measures or even things like turkey basters; measure though teaspoons by getting yourself an advance set of measuring spoons. Booth can usually be found at local grocery or even dollar stores
Let me know what you guys think, i know this helps me out and saves me from using way too much Stress Coat -- i know they say you can't really overdose with this but i still like to be sure.
