Prime, dropper style

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but does anyone know where I can get the prime bottles that are dispensed as drops? Way back when I had a small bottle of prime that would allow me to put in one drop per gallon. The bottle worked great as I use 5 gallon buckets for fish water related things.

I haven't seen them in Petco/petsmart and I don't see them on amazon. I had some in a bottle that sat in storage for ~8 years and threw it away as I figured the heat and cold + time might have done something to the chemicals. Now I just have a big bottle that states that 1 capful treats 50 gallons. Not exactly useful for 5 gallon buckets.

I just use a syringe and do 0.1ml per gallon. You could probably get one from most drug stores.

The Amazon listing shows a cap, but some buyers say they got a dropper, others say they got a cap. I'd like a dropper too if anyone finds one.
