Flourish Question.

I just picked up a bottle of Flourish for my 2.5 gallon tank. I am wondering how much of this stuff you guys use for tanks this small? I'm guessing as little as .25 Ml or so but with the dosage listed on the bottle it's a little tough getting from 5ML - 60 Gallons to ??ML - 2.5Gallons. It seems I have forgotten math.

I did the math and the dose for 2.5G = 0.208333ML. Any suggestions?

EEK! *Clears* Thank you very much. Does it measure down to .2083ML? lol Would you say it is safe to dose the tank with .25ML? There is no livestock in the tank and I don't think the plants would mind the extra much? What say you?

Plenty of people double the dose, so you will be fine with .25ml. I usually just measure how many drops from my dropper comes out to 1 ml (15 on my current dropper) and go from there.
