Darkblade48 There was a Metricide calculator that was on these forums, made for easing calculations.

I'm sure a forum search will bring it up.

If not, you could always figure out how much stronger Metricide is compared with Excel, and then just do some simple algebra to figure out the equivalent dosing.

It should ideally be dosed everyday, as glutaraldehyde breaks down over time.

Metricide dosing for 20 gallon?

I recently started a 20 gallon high and was wondering how much metricide to dose. I have medium lighting, am EI dosing, and am not using pressurized CO2. Does metricide need to be dosed each day? If so, how many ml would I need to dose per day?
