Directions for Benibachi Growth Enzyme?

Anybody want to figure this out? On Benibachi's site it says 2 pumps for 20 gallons. On the bottle itself it says Usage: - 1ml of 1 push is discharge - Please use 5 ml to 10L.

It DOES discharge 1 ml for one push but the directions on the bottle translate to 5 squirts to 2.64 gallons. Unless I'm just reading this wrong.

Ouch. $20 for a 100ml bottle, 20ml per 40liters, or 10 gallons, so on a 20gal tank, you end up using 40ml, so your $20 lasts you 2.5 water changes. Ouch.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Awesome topic. I did extensive research on PGRs. Have not seen any that show any awesome results

Uh huh...and since I was going off the directions on the Benibachi site well, um, I feel it's a little 'misleading' to say the very least.

I am guessing is a PGR, specially is it had an effect on plants, I would like to see a test done between a controlled group of shrimp and one with the enzyme.

It is something like 3 pumps every other day on their pump bottle. I bought it, used 2 bottles and in a span of several months, In shrimps bigger then juvis I saw no real increased growth. Now I did notice it help my baby CRS grow much faster than before, but seemed to only work until Juvi stage. Then it went back to normal.
