Selcon Dosing

Hi all,

I recently got some Selcon for my fish, I was just wondering if anyone has recommendations on how often to use it? I have a 12g nano, and do regular water changes (about every 1 1/2 weeks).

TIA,

matt

Soak your food in a few drops of it over night in the frig before you feed. I use it or zoe every time I feed (every other day) I also use garlic.

Do you soak just the flake food? Or should I also soak the mysis shrimp as well?

Thanks!

matt

i just soak the meaty stuff... IMO flake would get really messy when selcon is added.
