I use Tetra Aquasafe but a lot of forum members use Prime.

I use gallon jugs and add 7 drops per gallon. I have 3 gallon containers, one 1 1/2 gallon, 1 2 1/2 gallon container and 1 4 gallon aquarium. I only do partials on my 4 gallon.

I fill them up the night before but not always. For my 4 gallon, I fill up 2 gallon jugs and the next day when I put the clean water in the tank, I refill the jugs back up and put that water in the tank. I only have 2 one gallon jugs so I have to do it that way.

Its 7 drops per gallon. I just noticed that it doesn't say how many drops per gallon on this bottle. This is a bigger bottle. I think it said on the small bottle. I had to buy the bigger bottle because I have 6 fish.

aahhhh ok, lol, what about using different kinds of conditioner? My new tank comes with one already, but I want to get that Prime and use it.

is there such a thing as putting in too much water conditioner? I'm getting ready for bed considering it's 12:12am here. I took out 1 gallon of water in my tank and I added what I thought was gonna be 1 gallon, but it didn't fill it back up to where it was. The conditioner I had in the water was enough for 1 gallon but it was only a half gallon. When I get up to get the kids up for school, I'll check what everyone had to say.

If it was too much, what do I need to do to fix it please. Thank you everyone

If I needed just a little more water, I'd fill up a half gallon, add the right amount of drops and then add the water to my tank. If you don't use up all the water in your jug, thats ok, just dump it out.
