API general cure question

Hi. Just bought some general cure for my rescue betta but the instructions say its for 10 gallons. Has anyone ever recalculated the dosage? I wanted to premix in an empty gallon jug and I don't want to get my math wrong and over dose or under dose the poor guy. HELP!!

one tablet treats 10 gallons correct...have used this before..and it works well..what size is your tank? or how many gallons of water do you have the fish in currently? if less than 10 cut tablet to necessary size before making mixture to add...eg. 5g cut half tablet etc etc...

Well the problem is that it comes in a powder and since I'm floating my rescued betta in a cup inside my 5 gal tank I was wanting to premix in a gallon jug. There seems to be about a 1/2 tsp of powder in each packet so idk a pinch? How strong is this stuff? Too little it doesn't work or too much and it kills him.

Have you thought about dividing it until it is 1/8 of a teaspoon then mixing it into a 2.5 gallon jug. Then using the water from that to treat your betta
