|mobruler78||Thanks for all the input. I had an Amazon gift card so I grabbed a Soft 'N Style Lotion Dispenser Bottle (16 oz.) for $4 and combined with an order so shipping was free. Works great!|

You're welcome! I mix up my Macros in a 2 liter pitcher, keeping it in the fridge until I'm ready to fill up my ketchup bottle again. It was a cheap fix until I find something better!

See Orlando at Greenleaf Aquariums. I love the bottles that I got from him. I don't care if they might be a little more expensive, the service that I get from him is worth it!

|rileynapalm||I went to walmart and picked up two clear "ketchup style" bottles. both hold a little over 250mL and were about 98 cents. I know it's a bit small for what you want, but it may be able to work for temporary purposes. Or you can just use one for micros or something?|

Dosing bottles / containers?
If you have a university nearby with a decent medical, veterinary, or chemistry program, see if they have public surplus sales. I get all my lab glassware for pennies from UC Davis.

|13B-RX3||I used an empty mouth wash container. Has a 10ml siphon tube, squeeze it till it fills up and then release. It sucks out all but 10ml. I adjusted my ferts for the 10ml dose instead of the 5ml.|

Since Hoppy mentioned shipping costs, it may be worth checking out chemical supply and plastics supply companies in Northern Virginia. You may be able to find things for cheaper.
If you can't, you could always consider ordering some new filter tubing or a storage container of some sort to help justify the shipping costs/make your order worthwhile.

Dosing bottles / containers?
Ditto. I use the 500 ml bottles as well. I use them for NPK as well as micros and metricide. I have a smaller one I use for treating tap water. On each bottle i have a post it note with the various dosages.
It makes dosing simple. I used to do the syringe thing but it gets old just like the syringes, I no longer order them

|Fdsh5||I use aquarium fertilizers.com as well. I mix mine in a mason jar and dose it with a 20 ml syringe with a blunt tip needle. It makes it super easy to count drop wise and then you know your volume of ferts per tank. Now I know how much to squirt out of the syringe without counting drops. Makes it real easy for me.|

|Hoppy||I got mine from US Plastics too, but the shipping cost was high enough that I felt I had to buy more of them then I wanted, then sell the excess in the for sale forum here, which I did.|

Re: Dosing bottles / containers?

Check out U.S. Plastics or Uline (or any direct plastics retailer online) for measured dispensing bottles. Super-cheap.
You should be able to get 8-10 bottles of differing sizes for the price most folks on the forum (or many of the sponsors) would charge you for a single container.
