So I had to figure out what all the hoopla was about regarding Seachem's Prime. I bought a bottle of it last week and am going to use it later today when I change the water in my tank.
I noticed that the concentration is much higher than with Stresscoat or Kordon's Water Conditioner (what I currently use). The problem is that my tank is on the smaller side (5.5g), and since I end up changing only 25-40% of the water at a time, the dosage of Prime seems like it's going to be difficult to measure out. It's 1ml per 10 gallons (or the lower thread on the cap as the bottle says... even though the threads have a pitch to them
). So I'd have to measure out roughly 250 to 400 microliters for my water changes.
Given how popular this stuff seems on here, I'm curious how everyone else is dosing it out on their smaller tanks. I mean I could always just round up to 1ml and just add that since it seems easier, but that would seem to defeat the point of having a higher concentration water conditioner.
I thought about finding a graduated eyedropper to measure this stuff out, but curious if anyone had a "MacGuyver" solution instead. Thanks
