How much vita-chem/selcon/garlic?

I've done a few searches here and see that many people soak their food in garlic, selcon, and vita-chem regularly. I'm wondering how much to use?

As far as I can tell, garlic is just for soaking and then you pour it off and/or rinse the food. Is that correct?

And do I add vita-chem and selcon to frozen foods before adding them to the tank (I feed every other day) or should I be adding them directly to the tank? How much and how often? My reef tank is 55G and total volume around 80G.

Thanks in advance!

I add two drops of garlic and the Selcon has a measuring dropper, I fill the dropper to .5mL, I use zoe and just add a litle of that, not sure on the vita chem, but that's what I feed for my 55....I also don't dump out the garlic either...
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
