That was more like three months ago....time swims by...LOL
Its one big dog program pill for 100 gallons... keep scoring it like you used to
see on miami vice and soon you will have it down to an amount that you can dose
in your aquarium...of course you have to crush the pill first. Score in half,
then in half, and yet again in half and you have enough to dose your 125 tank
once and that should be all you need.
