Question Prime amounts

Hi everyone. I just got a bottle of Prime & it says 1 capful for a 50 gal tank. I only have a 5 gal tank so I only need about 1/8 of a cap. Does anyone have an accurate measure in drops that would help me be more accurate. Also, can I mix a little of the API I have left over along with the Prime or stick to only one brand at a time. Thanks, I'm still new at this & trying not to kill my fish.

.5 mL for 5 gallons. I use a little medicine syringe to measure and dispense it - easy to find at any pharmacy or target/walmart.

1ml per 10g, so 0.5ml or 10 drops for a 5g tank. (2 drops per g)

Thanks Sugarunicorn. I heard Prime was better than what I had so I wanted to use it but couldn't quite get the dosage right. Thanks for your help. I already have a dropper so that's perfect.
