Default Dosage of Nutrafin Cycle with water change?

I know some of you don't like this product but would appreciate advice from those who do?

Nutrafic Cycle instructions say dose 5ml per 38L after a water change. Is that for the volume of water changed or the total volume of water in the tank? The instructions aren't clear and on my 240L tank there would be a massive difference in dosage depending on how you interpreted them.

Many thanks

You add and count it as water taken from the tank. Not very clear at explaining it. If you put back 30 litres then you would treat 30 litres of water.
