Hm...well that stinks haha. I've diluted it but I haven't used it in almost a week. You'll never guess what happened though. I was doing a water change last night and he GOT SUCKED UP IN THE VACUMN. Luckily he's fine but gosh...I've never had that happen before.

With Maracyn Plus you should do 100% change along with dose 1. Do a 50% change and redose on day 3 (two days later), and 100% change and redose on day 5 (2 days after that). Wait 2 more days and continue normal water change routine (at least 50% change at this point). He may need a second round but maybe not. Reevaluate after this point. Should not require or give any more than 2 rounds.

Wow.. never had that happen before. Glad he's ok.

How do I dose? It says 2 capfuls for 10 gallons of water. Can I put one capful in 5 tablespoons of water like I did with the Maracyn I and II?

Yes. You can put one capful in 5 tablespoons then take one tablespoon and put it in the 1 gallon bowl. Mix up fresh each time.
