help for the math challenged

i can saddle and ride any horse on the planet but when it comes to math, i am less than hopeless.

got my jar of PhosBan and i cannot, for the life of me, figure out the conversion. well, wait, i can figure it out (1g/gallon) but i don't have a scale that is sensitive enough to weigh out the proper amount.

can anybody who has used this product give me some idea as to what 1g would equal when it comes to teaspoons?

this is so embarrassing.

Re: help for the math challenged

Is the g for grams? A gram is equal to .2 teaspoons.

55 gallon - Community
10 gallon - None
5 gallon - Delta Tail Betta

Re: help for the math challenged

yes, the g is for gram. .2 sounds like a miniscule amount!

Equivalents and Measures | Exploratorium
I use phosguard, but if this is any help it says to use 1 cup for every 75-100 gallons.
28 grams in an ounce/16 ounces in a lb. if that helps any .
I miread your info;according to the chart above 3 teaspoons equal 1 table spoon which equal 14.3 grams(1/2 ounce)
