But, most people double that dosage, so you would go 1ml for your 5gallon tank.
These are correct. You should dose everyday especially when you are heavily planted. Your dosing no where near recommended dosage. Excel only lasted 24hrs. Over dosing will cause fishes gasping for air on top of your tank.
