WOW, I've never seen a water conditioner that recommends 48 drops!
The ones I use are like 2-3 drops/per gallon I think.
I'll check mine tomorrow.
Nevermind, the one I'm using right now is Jungle - Start Right
It's in a crystal formulation. 1 tsp for every 5 gallons of water.
BTW, since you posted a picture of the conditioner instructions, could you post a picture of the tank your betta is currently housed in?
I housed mine in 1/2 gallon maybe smaller, and they were fine. They ate like crazy.
Now they're in a sorority tank together.
