Been reading up about jellyfish and nutrition. Been feeding them newly hatched BB

Has anyone used Selco with good results, any tips?

What difference did you see in your fish?

Following. Just started hatching bbs again, used to feed them asap after hatching, wanted to try selco enrichment this time, but not sure what the procedure is - what is shrimp/selco ration? counting shrimp density is prolly not easy, also afraid to get fatty selco to the tank.

I use it along with Boyd’s vitachem and other stuff.

I think the fish look better when it’s used. Definitely helps when qt’ing.

Scientific proof - none

anecdotal - yes

How exactly do you do it?

1. Frozen food. let us say you have one cube of mysis, you thaw it in tank water - and then what?

2. Same with enriching baby brine shrimps. I have a freshly hatched batch - I understand I put them in e.g. water cup with certain number of drops of Selcon? After time T (please provide) I wash them with saltwater and feed. How do I know how many drops of Selcon to use - is it calculated based on amount of eggs used? or volume of water used for enrichment?

Sorry I missed the jelly fish part on my phone. So I may have thrown your thread off. My mix is for fish.

+1 additional ingredient - SeaChem GarlicGuard

#1 - I defrost in a specimen cup, drain off the water, add all of my magic ingredients then mix with SeaChem Focus. Its a binder. I then let that chill so the binder does its thing.


If I'm treating fish in QT I will also add General Cure or Fenbendazole to the above mixture.


#2 I'm not sure.

Just google “Selcon Brine shrimp” and you’ll find a ton of info (some directly from selcon) and videos on how to use it to enrich live foods, frozen, etc.
