]Need to include a standard size for metric and UK gallon tanks, but I don't know the standard dosages used for medications



I have a very good vet who takes my qt size and works put the med for me per litres -

I can divide or multiply this as per any tank I need to add it to per litre !

If you have a good vet he/she will do this. mine is very inbterested in my tropical fish keeping and made a good treatment for me for nemotode worms I used .

Well done Summerhill Veterinary surgery !!!

Thanks for your comment, Kideafish. Smile So, do you think it would be better to just leave out any suggestions for UK gallon or metric size recommendations for a QT?

Here many of the meds that are sold in the fish stores are dosed per every ten gallons. So a 10 gallon tank is a convenient size when medication is necessary. I was really just wondering how OTC meds are dosed in places that use UK gallons or liters.

Well I just gave my vet the name of the treatment I needed and explained why, they took great interest, and then it took him a whole day to mix it up and work it out to amount per litre .

I just then worked out my litrage in any tank I was going to use it in and added the med , which works well I must say !!

Good topic you put in though, I must add !

Any other inputs are appreciated. Smile

Thanks Haname! I've just finished preparing the permanent page and launched it on the site. As usual, I made a few adjustments to the layout and text, please check and feel free to suggest any additions/removals/modifications to the final version, OK? I did convert all units from gallons to liters since AoA is an international site and 'officially' adopts the international (metric) system.
