Dosing of Metricide 14

I just got a 2 gallon bottle of Metricide 14 (1.5% glut) and I calculated if I normally doses 5 ml Excel in my 55 gal I would dose about 2.9ml Metricide (2.6% glut).

I just want to make sure my calculation is correct and I'm not under or overdosing.



Thanks

It's Excel that's 1.5% glut, but I think you just misphrased that. The math is right:

(5 / 2.6) * 1.5 = 2.88ml
