Seeding dosage
This is the first dosage and will provide a significant boost to the system.  Double the maintenance dose determined below.  Many water systems will not need treatment during the cold winter months.  Anticipate doing a seeding dosage once a year in early spring.

Maintenance dosage
3 to 5 oz. per 1000 gallons per week during months when the water temperature is above 50o F (10o C).  Microorganisms are not significantly active when temperatures are under 50o F.

  • 3 oz. per 1000 gallons for systems in good shape (low stocking density of fish, adequate filtration, low ammonia, and good aeration/circulation)
  • 5 oz. per 1000 gallons for systems in need of significant organic reduction and systems with high stocking densities.
  • 4 oz. per 1000 gallons per week is the average dosage rate.  Most systems will do fine with this amount.
