The only thing we use in our black and gray tanks is Costco brand liquid Laundry detergent drop in pillows. I put 4 of the pillows in each 50 gallon tank dissolving them in the toilet and bathroom sink first. I normally brush the toilet detergent before dumping into the black tank. Never have any oder even in hot weather. We normally camp for 4 to 5 day without dumping either tank. I always keep both tank valves closed even when we have full hookups which isn't very often. I only dump my gray take when it almost full, the full tank dump helps clean out any food waste that gets in the tank.
