Mesuring Conditioner

Ok so I was just wondering, the water conditoner that I use is mesured by 5ml/10g. How would I get that down to 1 gallon? Sorry, this is kind of a stupid question, but I just want your opinion.

To be honest, I'd get a new kind that measures in drops, or at least smaller amounts! That way you wont under or over do it. You can figure out something by doing a 1 gallon jug w/that amount and figuring out what fraction of that gallon translates into what you need... It gets complicated D:

Ya well I have a different conditioner made for bettas but I can't just transfer him into it right away can I? And I can't make a whole 10g and store it somewhere. I honestly have NO room for it! Oh what have I gotten nmyself into this and WHY in the world did I listen to those idiot fish store people???

I'm just asking because I need to put P.J. in QT with aquarium salt. I can't keep taking water out of the tank for obvious reasons. Sorry to be nagging but I was looking to put him in the salt tonight....

I use a baby medicine dropper to measure the conditioner. You can find them in the baby setcion at the drug store. You'll need one that measures down to .5ml

So would it be 0.5 ml for 1 gallon? Can you get baby medicine droppers with mesurements that small?

Yes 5/10=.5 so it's .5ml per galon. I have one I think I got from my nieces fever medicine that measures from 1/4ml to 1ml but I have seen them at the drug store too. Also syringes will have those smaller measurements, I have one that goes down to .1ml which I use to measure Prime conditioner.

^^^That.

And silly, you dont fill up ten gallons worth, you use a single gallon and take a portion of that water :P But the dropper is a better idea.
