grrr. what to dose?
ok, I'm slightly confused... maybe you guys can lend a hand. Per Seachem's website, normal dosing of Excel is as follows:
"On initial use or after a major (>Ę40%) water change, use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 gallons*). Thereafter use 1Ęcapful (5ml) for every 200 L (50 gallons*) daily or every other day."
When determining a 2x or 3x dose for my 50 gallon tank, which of the above dosage rules do I go by? If I go by the 1Ęcapful (5ml) for every 50 gallons, then a 2x dose for my 50g would be 10ml and a 3x dose for my 50g would be 15ml? Yes? I will assume these are daily doses, not every other day.
I can't figure out how some of you folks arrived at doses like 25ml for a 75g as mentioned in this thread, or others I've read like, 15ml in a 30g, or 30ml in a 18g.
Basically, what would you recommend as 2x and 3x dosages for my 50g? Also, should I expect cloudiness during the treatment? If so, do I stick to my normal once a week water change routine or do a special "emergency" partial water change?
