Default tap water conditioner

hi all,
can anyone tell me the tap water conditioner is it harmful to the fish
if you put to much in???
i recentley had a new bottle and the quantity is different,
as i do my water changes by the bucket which holds (3 gallon)
the bottle states 10ml per 8 gallon for choramine and scales
5ml for chorine.
this is nutrafin aqua plus
so does it mean 10ml will do 3 gall bucket??
i put 5ml in each bucket i use is this to much??
or not enough??
ive done water readings and they are
ammonia 0
nitrite 0
nitrate <5
this is my 60ltr tank
hope you can understand this
thanks for any help given here

Since your putting the water into the bucket, that (3gal.) is all you have to treat.
It sounds to me you are doing good with cutting it back to 5ml or a bit less for 3 gal.
I don't think a little over is going to hurt anything.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

When you run out of the Aqua Plus buy Prime...You cannot over dose and it does not have the unnecessary herbal junk in it.
