EDIT: Crepe - not attacking you by any means... just scratching my head a lil.... if it works... IT WORKS!
I'm going to guess it was a typo, but if not, same as above. Whatever works.

It takes about 12 drops to equal 1 ml. 1oz is 30 ml apprx So 360 drops per ml 1oz per 6 minutes and 5oz in 30minutes. Which is about equal to the amount of water I get in a bag for small fish. Big fish on the other hand I would drip at a faster rate.

That's at 1 drop per second, two drops per second is 10oz.

and there, ladies and gentlemen, is the difference in the metric system!

the "metric" drop, 1/20 mL
the medical drop, 1/12 mL
the Imperial drop, 1/288 of an Imperial fluid ounce
the U.S. drop, 1/480 of a U.S. fluid ounce

-Quoting Drop (volume) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I just used an old pippete to calibrate drops per mL. I guess there was a point to 12 per ml lol.
