Using To Much Prime?

When using prime what is considered a overdosed amount?

Because I'm switching to prime because one I did have is ok, not the best. But prime says 1 capful for 200 litres, so would it be half a capful for 160 litre tank?

Well you can double dose prime if needed so you would have to put a very lot in to over dose

A capful is fine for 160l. You can safely dose prime up to 5x the recommended dose so no worries! If you want to be precise, use a 5ml syringe for an exact dose.

make sure you are using enough prime to make the water safe for your aquarium. you can safely use 2x the recommended doseage. i would make it easy and just use a capful.
