Selcon® Concentrate Recipes

The benefits of Selcon® Concentrate are truly astounding

Here is one of our favorite recipes:

Go to the FISH MARKET where you would buy FRESH FISH for your family to eat and purchase the following:

  • 1 or 2 uncooked shrimp
  • A few fresh clams (in the shell)
  • Scraps of fish fillet (tuna, cod, salmon, etc.)
  • 1 Squid, cleaned but not cooked
  • A few scallops

Remove the shrimp and clams from their shells and pat the meat dry on a paper towel. Wrap each shrimp and each clam with plastic wrap and put in freezer overnight. Wrap each of the remaining ingredients individually with plastic wrap and freeze overnight. The next day, carefully cut each frozen piece by using a serrated bread knife; trying to make thin slices, the approximate thickness of a nickel. Continue to chop these small frozen slices to the size of a grain of rice. Small pieces of fish will cut best when frozen. Put all of the chopped pieces into a small bowl and add enough Selcon Concentrate (shake first) to give the mixture a consistency similar to cooked oatmeal. I also like to add a few scoops of Masago, which is the roe of Capelin or Smelt, commonly used by Japanese to make Sushi. The eggs are colored bright orange, approximately 1 mm in diameter and relished by all of the tank inhabitants. You can purchase small amounts of this in any oriental specialty store or perhaps a friendly Sushi restaurant. The mixture can now be thinly spread onto a sheet of plastic wrap and frozen. Miniature ice cube trays or empty cube packs work very well also. Make small batches of this recipe and make it frequently...Enjoy

These are recipes that I use and have nice, fat, happy fish!

My recipe for Fish:
1 full dropper of Selcon™ Concentrate
1 gram or so of Easy Reefs Masstick
Add medication if needed (Kanaplex, Metro, etc.)*

Mix into a moist ball consistency but not too moist. Stick to glass and watch fish go crazy for it.

*Add a couple of drops of kent garlic if medicating, covers up the bitterness of the meds. 

For Sun Corals/Dendro or LPS (Acan, Torch, Chalice, Hammers): 
10-15 drops Selcon™ Concentrate
1 cube of PE Calanus 
Approx. 1/2 to 1 tsp. of Reef Roids
1/4 tsp. NLS small or mini pellets
Can also add a little bit of small Mysis 

Mix thick, use a suitable syring, let soak 30 min. before use.


from C. Albino, NY

I use Selcon™ Concentrate to rehydrate freeze-dried brine shrimp mixed with spirulina powder and nori.

Here’s my mix:
¼ cup freeze-dried brine shrimp
¼ cup spirulina powder
1 sheet unseasoned nori
20 mL Selcon™

Chop nori into fine pieces. Mix all dry ingredients together and then add the Selcon. Let it soak for 20  minutes. It forms a dry paste. Spread thinly on a sheet of plastic wrap and freeze. Once frozen break into little pieces. When ready to use, thaw it in a bit of filtered or aquarium water.

My fish love it and it lasts a long time.

PS--The Selcon™ Concentrate retains its potency when defrosted.
