Question about Prime

I know Prime is highly recommended on here and other places. My concern/question is this: When I went to buy a bottle, the dosage instructions were along the lines of "One capful per 50 gallons of water." How the heck to you dial it down to the amount needed to treat one gallon jug at a time? My girls are in a 10 gallon tank, but I don't keep a ten gallon jug of water sitting at the ready for my partial changes. I keep several 1 gallon jugs.



Help?

I use a syringe to measure out 0.1mL per gallon. I also found a top that releases in drops which are approximately 0.1mL and screwed it onto the bottle (I think the 50mL bottles come with this type of top).

It's 1-2 drops per galon if you don't have a small siringe to measure.
The tiny bottles will have instructions for small tanks, you can just have a peek next time you're at the LPS.
I have been using it for a long time and don't even bother measuring anymore as overdosing does not have any ill effects on the fish. I just pour a little into the cap and add to the tank.
