So I have been looking all over the internet for dosing amounts for seachem safe, I found a lot of mixed dosing rates, So I went to the seachem web site to double check the label on my seachem safe is the same, apparently they have changed the dosing rates which are correct on my bottle of seachem safe, but I wanted to know how much I needed to treat smaller tanks, So I made up a chart for easier reference below, Just posting it here so I don't loose it. btw the grams is pretty much the same as milliliters if you do not have scales, I personally ordered a set of "Mad Millie Culture And Enzyme measuring spoons" these have the tad, dash, pinch smidgen and drop measurements. For smaller tanks not listed the normal dosing rate is basically 0.1g / 100mg per 100 liters, so if you had a 20 litre tank it would be 20mg / 0.02g for a normal dosing rate

 

 

[Update "Drop" = 1/40 tsp or 1/64 tsp, Depends on what brand of measuring spoons used]

This is great! Had heard the same on changed dosing rates. (although a warning not to smell it still applies...).

I just realized a "Drop" is actually 1/40 tsp(0.125g) which treats 125 liters / 33 Gallons at normal dosing rate, I will update the chart soon, not sure how to measure out for smaller tanks, must be a couple of grains lol

Do you guys dose Seachem Safe straight into the tank? Or premix it?

I want to get onto it but heard it can be quite strong and read all sorts of mixed things.

What's your opinion on the product and dosing?
