Question metracide 28

I bought a gallon of 2.5% metracide 28. It has been many years since i last used it and have forgotten the dosage. Can someone please advise me to the dosage for a ten gallon tank? Thanks to everyone in advance. - Bill

I'm not sure about 28, but 14 is about 70% stronger then excel. Excel says 5ml for every 10 gallons to start. then 1ml per 10 gallons after.

Here is a link on metracide 14 https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...ight=metracide

Edit: I looked up metracide 28 and some post said it had a surfactant in it and the 14 does not. I'm not sure if this is a problem or not, hopefully someone else can chime in.

I hear that Metracide 28 has surfacant in it. I also hear that the surfacant used isnt harmful to fish. I still went with a gallon of Metracide 14 to be safe and because the cost difference was minimal.
