    Yes, too much can be bad. An easy way to measure small doses is to pick up a 1mL medication syringe (I just ask my vet for one, they're usually happy to give one for free!) and then measure it that way. Even easier is to get a dropper and add 2 drops per gallon, so 6 drops for your jug ;)

    I don't see how it would be bad, I wouldn't put a whole bottle in the three gallon jug. A little extra should be fine.
    OK I could be wrong.

    Buy a Med syringe at the pharmacy for about a dollar and you can dose water conditioners and Meds accurately. Overdosing Prime a but is probably harmless, but double doses and more for no good reason will waste the money the Med syringe costs pretty quickly.
