Seachem recommends dosing 5 ml/10 gallons after every water change. That is really an overdose, and it will kill back vals and other sensitive plants. It accomplishes nothing to dose that much, when 2 ml/10 gallons dosed daily works fine, and doesn't kill any plants, unless it is some I have never tried or heard of it killing. Dosing more than 6 ml/10 gallons is likely to harm more plants and possibly some fish or shrimp. Yes, glut is a chemical that can kill life, but so are most salts when greatly overdosed.
