Help with liters and mls - want to confirm I am doing this right


G'morning all. I have a 20 gal. set up with CRS and getting ready to Mosura Mineral Plus. It says 1ml per 10 liters - according to calcs, 20 gallons equals 75 liters. So, if I am calculating this correctly, I should add 7.5mls of Mosura Mineral Plus.

Just want to confirm that I am doing this right - this is NOT the time to be screwing up at the expense of my little critters.

TIA

i think with mosura i have read some times you need different measurements to get the same readings. its one of those add a little and measure your parameters and add a bit more and measure again to get where you want it to be

And in the future, you can always type into google "convert x gallons to liters" and it'll tell you exactly with no math. Like I just typed "convert 20 gallons to liters" and it told me 75.7
