Statement On Tetra Bottle Different Front and Back!

Bought a 3.38 oz. of SafeStart yesterday. Noticed that the bottom-left side of bottle says "Treats up to 100 gallons", but the back of the bottle, under Directions, says "To start new aquarium, add entire bottle to aquarium up to 20 gallons." Front of bottle differs from the back. Front: "up to 100 gallons", back: "up to 20 gallons"

Either Tetra wrote it wrong or I'm interrupting it wrong. Have already sent a message to Tetra about it, but, most likely, can rely on you folks to answer faster than them (if they even answer)!

BTW, this is for cycling (again) a 5 gallon that will also have a male betta put in. Alreay have a moss ball two live plants, Mini Heater, carbon cartridge/BIO Wheel filtration in it. Have already done a Thread about the first attempt at cycling this aquarium.
Thanks

Ignore Tetra's instructions. Dump in the entire bottle and then suck up aquarium water and squirt it out a couple times to make sure you get it all. Again, it will cloud for a bit but should clear up within 2 days. The cloudiness won't harm your betta.

The difference in instructions is because a NEW tank needs the whole bottle for 20 gallons. If your using it to boost the biofiltration of an established tank, then it will treat 100 gallons.
Good luck with your fish!
