      60g Net volume. Start2 @ .1ml 2x daily, AAHC 2 drops every other day. Bak & Food7 are 2 drops 2x week. I have had no problems with slime/bacteria. Although I have not dosed Bak/Food7/AAHC in two weeks I had no proir problems.

        200 net volume. Start2 @ .3 ml 2 x daily, Bak 4 drops & food 3 drops are 2 x week. I don't dose any other additives at this time, dealing with red turf algae. I had this algae before Zeo. But think the AAHC will help fuel the fire. I'm trying to put out.
