I agree. Imo
, rate of dissolving depends on a few other factors too.
-Ratio of the mix. If you add slightly less powder than the recommend mix, it will dissolve quicker. I used less powder for my fry, who were in a plastic trap. If you plan on hanging it in the tank, I would recommend using slightly more powder than the 1:3 ratio. When I say 'slighty', I mean about a teaspoon +/-
-Temp in the tank.
- Current/flow in the tank.
I have not conducted 'scientific' experiments on these factors but I have noticed it when I mix it a few different ways....
