Just saw this thread and would like to share the Glut product I recently purchased from e-b-a-y... If you can get a hold of Pro-Advantage by NDC product (they have 14 and 28 days as well), that's the same as Metrex Metricide... I checked and confirmed with Metrex that they private labeled this for them and MSDS-wise, they're identical (like xerox copy)... The best part, I only paid ~$20 shipped for a gallon...
Here's what it looks like for reference (the pic shows the 28 day product)

I bought from that seller on ebay, advertised metricide, I got omnicide. It isnt the same omnicide has a rust inhibitor added that metricide doesnt. Omnicide also smells like mint. I had been adding a little extra, not over dosing but about 8ml a day in my 58 as my CO2 was running low and my bubble count wasnt as high. Lights came on and I see a ton of snails and shrimp at the top and several dead shrimp.
My point is there is for sure something else in it, Ive used merticide and only had it kill and stress when I really overdosed. Use omnicide only at regular levels.

|jeepguy||I actually bought my metricide from this seller. Didn't have any problems and shipment was relatively quick.|

|tetra73||Does anyone know if anything harmful about metricide 14 over excel? Or they have the same effects when overdosing too much?|

Do not use the activator.
Store in a cool dark location and it will last a year or more.

|MB2||Just bought a gallon of metricide 14. The instruction said to mix in the activator before use and do not use beyond 14 days! For our planted tank purposes, do you mix in the activator? And don't use after 14 days?|

I didn't have any problems with my order. Ordered over weekend, shipped on Monday & received Thursday. Very well packaged.
EDIT: I don't see a problem with using Omnicide the MSDS reads exactly the same as for Metricide ... only difference is the manufacturer. Here's the MSDS for Omnicide: http://www.kellysolutions.com/erenew...6_31_39_PM.pdf
Here's the MSDS for Metricide: https://www.vaxserve.com/image.cfm?d...ype=msds_sheet
So if anyone knows why I can't/shouldn't use Omnicide, please speak up.

Calculator for solution here.
I don't have ml measuring cup, just a baby syringe. So I did a 6:1 with Cidex 28 which is 2.5% glut. Then dosing 6ml daily in 29G.

|sowNreap||Price is down for Metricide 14 via e b a y .. $20.99 with free shipping. Search item # 350766996161 . The seller doesn't have the best rating but I'm going to chance it .. can always use buyer protection or PayPal dispute if any problems. Cheapest I've seen lately.|
