Great Product, A Must Have By Ron.K on 6/23/2020Ron.K would recommend this product to a friendA must-have in the hobby. Saved my tang from ich. I started infusing frozen food with Selcon at the early sign of ich, 4 days later 99% of ich gone and fish look healthy. I plan to use Selcon with every feeding.
Awesome By James on 11/24/2019James would recommend this product to a friendHave used on tank with mild ich, within 2 weeks no visible signs and fish heath looks great
Impressed! By Patientman on 6/18/2018Patientman would recommend this product to a friendLearned of this food additive several years ago at a MACNA seminar and have been using it ever since! Eat up soaked foods eagerly and have enjoyed better health since I've put this into my feeding regiment!
Great stuff, fish love it! By Steve on 6/20/2017Steve would recommend this product to a friendAwesome stuff! It works well as an attractant to get fish to eat. Also noticed my clown getting nice and fat after using this as well! As far as nutrition goes, it's tough to say how effective it is without conducting a controlled test. Perhaps food additives could be something tested on BRS Investigates?? :)
Really beneficial to fish and reef safe By Great additive on 2/19/2017Great additive would recommend this product to a friendOne of my best purchases I have made I use it in my 300 gallon Fowlr and 75 gallon reef tank.
Add It to Nori By John on 2/4/2017John would recommend this product to a friendUse Selcon with Sea Veggies for the fattest, healthiest tangs you'll ever have. Put red, green, and purple sea veggies in a bullet blender, let it blend for 45 or so seconds, and add a few drops of Selcon. Let the Selcon soak up in the chopped Sea Veggies, then soak the Sea Veggies in water with your other foods. It's the best preventative concoction for MHLLE and preventing ich outbreaks in tangs I've ever used. Far better consumption of Sea Veggies/nori than with just a veggie clip.
Fish Go For It! By Smo on 12/11/2016Smo would recommend this product to a friendBeen using it for a couple of months. So far so good. Think it is helping with immune systems but have no way to properly confirm.
Great addition to food By James on 11/30/2016James would recommend this product to a friendI use this product in conjunction with garlic to entice my fish to eat frozen brine shrimp. They all seem to like it, and in the beginning, this is what got them to eat frozen brine shrimp.
Coral like it too By Fishers Coral Reef Farm on 11/23/2016Fishers Coral Reef Farm would recommend this product to a friendI like to soak my Reef Chile in Selcon before target feeding corals. Otherwise, I pre-soak flake food in it and the fish really eat it up.
Nice supplement By Larry on 4/25/2016Larry would recommend this product to a friendI soak my frozen food with a little tank water and Selcon once a week. Fish seem to like it and I feel like it helps with their overall health and color.
Amazing product! By KUBA on 3/11/2016KUBA would recommend this product to a friendThis stuff is amazing! The fish went crazy fighting over food.... yes it increased their appetite by a ton. I also gave some socked shrimp to my NEMS, my BTAS bubbled up allot and colored up. This is funny i found out that i have one more BTA than I thought (it never bubbled up in the past )
AMAZING PRODUCT GET IT!
Great Product By Chris on 1/7/2016Chris would recommend this product to a friendI use this twice a week and my tank is happy and healthy. I always trust and value the opinions and advise offered from BRS.
What kind of shelf life does Selcon have once the bottle has been opened / how can I tell if it is too old?
The Selcon will have a refrigerated life of approximately 12 Months maximum. There is not a great way to tell, and the negative effect of using old selcon won't be bad, some of the effectiveness of certain parts will have worn down.
