    What would happen if you dose more nopox than the tank needs?

    I was wondering the same thing!
    I know it is potent, so would rather not mess with it to much.

    Also probably depend on your water volume!

    Well guys I have been dosing 10mls twice a day and am now reducing after three weeks. I was just curious. It helped me get rid of a bit of hair algae during the cycle period.

    I dose 4ml a day with no adverse effect so for your water volume you are probably under dosing.
