I've never heard too much being a bad thing. Actually from the Seachem website is the following :
Use 1 capful (5 mL) for each 200 L (50 gallons*) of new water. This removes approximately 1 mg
/L ammonia, 4 mg
/L chloramine, or 5 mg
/L chlorine. For smaller doses, please note each cap thread is approx. 1 mL. May be added to aquarium directly, but better if added to new water first. If adding directly to aquarium, base dose on aquarium volume. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 įC (86 įF) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
