Comments: I accidently purchased the large container of this, and I have a 35 gallon tank. Needless to say using 1/2 a teaspoon of extra strength, I'll be set for a couple decades! I had a case of Cotton Eye on one of my fish after 4 days dosing with this stuff it disapeared and it's been 1 month since I dosed and it has not come back.
