I was gonna put in half the bottle and fill up but I was talking with a friend while doing it and forgot to stop. I know the cleaner comes in the up to 13 gallons bottle too but I figured for the buy one get one free deal at advanced then it was worth it

It's totally fine. I wouldn't be doing it on every tank, but if you need a "deep cleaning" you should be okay.

It won't be a problem...you just gave it a high concentration (super) cleaning treatment. You could always top up your tank when you need a few gallons to 'dilute' it a bit...either way should be effective.

I totally switched over to SCG products.

Their wax is great & their Beyond Glass (Glass Cleaner) is fan-tastic. thumbsup
