You should have a filter also in your p-100!!!!
Ive had the tank stocked with 4 fish for about 2 weeks, 1 Dalmation Molly (1,1/2") has earned the name JAWS. At the last count there were 5 fry left.
You should get the right dosage by creeping up to the desired target of 4 ppm,add a little ,wait for it to mix in the tank, then test! If you need more add more! This will keep you from over dosing!...
