1/32 measuring spoon

I am looking for a measuring spoon set for my fertilizers. It is for a 10 gallon so they need to be really small. I am having no luck finding them locally and I don't like the cutesy names they offer online. Does anyone know where I can buy one or what I can use? Thanks in advance!

Hi Main,

Go to Evilbay and input "DASH PINCH SMIDGEN NIP" and you will find measuring spoon sets with spoons for 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64 teaspoon.

I found some simular ones from amazon and some reviews said it wasn't a true measurement. They were slightly off like 1/20th. I guess I'm being a little too anal about it and should order those dash pinch smidgen spoons.

I just ballpark it using a 1/16th from Wal Mart (for 5 gal). These are fish tanks - not an exact science and you don't need to be perfect. Never seen measuring devices that small...

Go to ebay and type in mini measuring spoon. That's what I use. Don't worry about "true measurements" just eyeball it like the rest of us.

Yes, I have those spoons. They are not equal divisions of a teaspoon. The largest size is ~1/5 (it's a little more than 1/5.) The smallest is ~1/96. Other sizes were 1/12, 1/20, and 1/40.

In a 10 gallon:
1/5 tsp for CaSO4, MgSO4, and K2SO4
1/20 tsp for KNO3
1/40 tsp for CSM+B and KH2PO4
