    I'm going to have to perform some water changes very soon, and I need to know-
    My bottle of AquaSafe says to add in 1 teaspoon per 10 gallons, how many drops would that be for 1 gallon each?

    Unfortunately it's hard to estimate because drop size varies with the aperture diameter; that is, a bigger hole makes bigger drops. If your bottle is a dropper bottle, you can get a teaspoon and count how many drops it takes to fill it up. That's what I did :) For me it ended up being 15 drops per 10 gallons.

    You might want to read the following thread from this forum on the "cheaper" conditioners and the concentration of each one. As I have stated to other members in the past, Prime is stronger and less is needed with each water change (lasts longer).

    And as Kinezumi stated - Not all drops are the same equals of measurements. I'd suggest making sure you are using the conditioner properly. :)
