Would last forever lol. 30 ml treats 1150 litres. So to treat your tank would only need 1ml.
This and aquarium salt are the only treatments I have used for anchor worm I have never used the other products listed to say effectiveness.
Aquarium salt dips work with anchor worm because the worms are actually freshwater crustaceans and are more sensitive to salt than the fish. The problem with this treatment is anchor worm reproduces in the water column so would still be present in the water. I would not advise keeping the freshwater fish in water of salt concentrations high enough to kill the parasite longer than 5 minutes.
