anyone try safeguard/panacur with 5.5 gal? I'm going to move forward and give it a try if no one responds but just wondering how other people measured out/divided up a 1g bag for a 5.5.gal?
Yep, many people have used in 5.5 gallons. I've personally sold over 1000 1 gram packets at cost. Once in a while I hear about a snail dying or someone saying it killed their tetra or something, but 99.9% of people using it have been fine.

Planaria need 2-3 doses over a week to kill, because they hide deep in the substrate.

Just dose 1/20th of a packet, or eyeball it.
