5 ml to teaspoons

I have to treat a 10 gallon fish tank and the directions have 5 ml to 90 gallons of water. How much do I need to put in 10 gallons of water?

5 mL = 1 teaspoon. However, be sure you are using a teaspoon from a measuring spoon set (the capacity will be marked). The spoon called a teaspoon from a flatware set may not be an accurate size.

Hi, if you want to treat 10 gallons rather than 90gallons, you might be better to use a dropper.

5mL x 10/90 = 0.56mL

There are about 20 drops in one mL, so you could carefully use 11 drops. Hope this helps.

A usual shot glass is an ounce. 5ml = .16 of a shot glass.

0.5 mL for 10 gallons. (90/9 = 10) and (5 mL/9 = 0.555...). Not 1/2 teaspoon but 0.5 mL.
1 Tsp = 5 mL and again just happens to be ten 0.5's in 5 mL so divide 1 tsp by 10 =

1/10 teaspoon in 10 gallons

If I messed that up (even though all 10's LOL), please anybody let me know, but I did it in my head then slowly here so think it's correct.
