I do the 2 drops per gallon as well. TBH I usually just eyeball it so they're probably getting more than 2 drops. Even with 11 tanks running a 250ml bottle lasts a while.

If you are cycling a tank make sure you don't use prime however because it'll neutralize your ammonia. Once the tank is cycled its fine to use, just not during a cycle.

nope..in fact when I go away for the weekend I always add a little extra prime to my bare bottom or uncycled tanks as a precaution to keep the ammonia down.

ok good to know! it says on the bottle in sever cases you can use up to 5x the dosage amount. Should I assume that is the max? Not that I would always add extra Im asking just for peace of mind

You can use prime when cycling a tank. I used it when cycling five tanks and I currently still use it on them. Ammonia and nitrite always zero, nitrates always below 10pmm.
