the going theory is divide each 1g packet up into 10 equal piles.
each pile is good for about 10 gallons.

or if you have a small digital scale .1g per 10 gallons

Ok TY bostoneric i guess that amounts to 2/10 of the packet ya 2 piles out of ten ok sounds good

Actually i guess its 4 equal piles for a 40 gallon but still thanks for helping me in the right direction though bostoneric .

no problem.

I've read people dose once, wait a few days, 3 or so, dose again just to be sure.
then a large water change a few days later and throw some carbon in your filter to help clean up any excess left in your water column.

others who have had experience dosing would know more.
