I wonder how they base the dosage on # of fish instead of water volume. Anyways, typical tablet applications use 200mg/10 gal for 5 days. People usually halve that to 100mg/10 gal if you're just treating BGA. You may want to see if there's any indication as to how much em is in one drop and compute the number of drops to get 100mg/10 gal. Otherwise you'll probably just have to make an educated guess and see if the BGA dies.
