Dose in alternate days.

You can inject directly in the tank by a syringe. Daily dose 3 ml to 4 ml. But start from lower dose.

aawnaik wrote:3. Is there any shelf life for Glut, I mean expiry?


Make another bottle to store around 50-100 ml Gluteraldehyde and use this bottle for daily dose. Main bottle should not open frequently.

[quote="aawnaik"]4. Does it need to be protected from light? /quote]

Keep it away from light. Better to keep it in dark. Always use brown bottle.

Thanks. As of now I am dosing 2ML daily. How many days it would take to reduce the algae?

Use 1 ml of 20% solution in 35 litre of water.

All of the plants mentioned by you are safe with Glut. Clossosistigma elatinoides grows like as weed with Gluteraldehyde in sufficient light.
