How much Flourish should I use?

I have a 6 gallon Fluval Edge with one live plant. This is a new tank, but the plant is from my old set up. The bottle says half a capful up to 20 gallons I think. So wondering what I should dose the tank with in a smaller tank (I have a syringe so a number in drops would be helpful)

Thanks!

I dose 1ml per 10 gallons, in high light co2. 3X a week. Found more on the lean side of micros gives less brown algae for my tank.
Dose macros per ei for a 40B.

Cap is 5ml

Unfortunately I can't even make out the threads on the cap so I have no idea what I'm dosing exactly

You have some measuring spoons? Teaspoon is 5ml

Bump: Or order some pipets. They are cheap

You won't need much, only one slow growing plant. EI is WAY too rich for this tank. I recommend 1/3 Seachem recommended dose 2x per week.

You've confused EL for EI - Estimative Index Fertilization.
