You can make a smaller amount of mixture so it doesn't stay bottled at room temperature for many months. I have many tanks and a 500 ml bottle only lasts for a month. Whatever oxidation that occurs should be minimal and insignificant for healthy plants in a home setting. It might be significant for large scale commercial nurseries or laboratories.
