A: Wait at least an hour, up to 12 hours is OK. Be sure to aerate the brine shrimp.


Q: What is the most effective way to feed Selcon?

A: Try freeze dried brine shrimp or mysis shrimp. Let shrimp soak in Selcon 20-30 minutes and feed. Freeze dried shrimp are approximately 45 to 65% protein and hold 9 times their weight in Selcon. When the shrimp are released into the aquarium most if not all of the Selcon stays within the carapace of the freeze dried shrimp therefore giving the highest dose of Selcon. Freeze dried Selcon infused brine or mysis shrimp can be frozen to be used later.


Q: Does Selcon™ lose its potency when frozen?

A: No it does not. Selcon™ retains its potency when defrosted.
