Bacter AE Dosing

So I started dosing bacter ae in my 10 gallon cherry shrimp tank after reading all the good things about it.

There are currently 10 shrimp in it (2 are berried). I dosed .10g on Monday and another .10g today (Thursday). Should I continue to repeat this schedule until I have quite a few more or is this too much/too little etc.?

Just curious on thoughts as I heard the directions are a bit overkill and have such a small colony. Thanks!

In a 10g tank you should put no more than a little less than ¼ of the scoop a week

Ok thanks good to know! I usually weigh the dosage so I'll have to check what the amounts to (grams) to determine if I'm getting close to that or too much. Is it better to dose all once a week or spread it out over a few days?

I mix mine in a bottle with tank water then pour it around the two sides an back of glass, I do this once a week, once you have young and your colony builds you can do the same but twice a week
