For larger ponds, round out volume to closest hundred gallons and add volumes with corresponding dosages to get approximate total.

EXAMPLE FOR 23,000 GALLON POND:
Double the dosage for a 10,000 gallon pond and then add the dosage for a 3,000 gallon pond. (10,000 gallons + 10,000 gallons + 3,000 gallons = 23,000 gallons / Dosage for first week: 6 oz. + 6 oz. + 3 oz. = 15 oz.)
