I dont know if the caps are different ...but inside the cap... there are ridges or rings......so what ever your cap says... full = 60 gallons ....38 would be a smidge over half

Dosing half strength is for medication when dealing with sensitive fish. For the Flourish Comprehensive, dose according to the directions on the bottle.

Go to the drug store and pick up a couple oral syringes much easier and more accurate to dose with then the caps.

+1 on this.

I got a couple of tiny syringes that measure in mL to use for Comprehensive and Prime. My bottles say one cap= 5mL, so I was using about a half cap thinking it was 2.5-3mL. Turns out half a cap is more like 5mL on my bottles and I was overdosing with everything. I guess that's why the new leaves on all of my swords died when I started dosing Comprehensive.

Good deal. I just wing it when it comes to measuring out the Flourish. I have a 75 gallon planted so I throw in a cap and 1/2(ish).

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
