Re: Recifal or FO?

I searched for selcon before here in the lebanese market but nothing.. I read that it is a good product for feeding fries,corals... unfortunately it is unfound here.I will try to check to see if they can ship it to Lebanon.

Thank you for your help Tom!
Have a greatttt week-end!!

Re: Recifal or FO?

Getting the coral to eat is a good thing!
Do you have" selcon"?
It is a good marine "vitamin" that be added to tank or soaked into food.

Enjoy your weekend Oliver!

Re: Recifal or FO?

Hello Tom
I dipped the coral,and it is placed in a low flow area.
I tried to feed him this morning before lights goes on in oder that its tentacles are out.but unfortunately no tentacles out.. I tried to place food on its mouth and the shrimp(aaa!!) always find a way to take corals food. So i used the bottle method and covered the coral and placed food on its mouth and waited.. 10min later the center of the coral opened and it ate the food A good start? Hopefully!
I got my new bangai cardinal fry yesterday i will post pictures tonight
Have a greaaaaat weekend Tom! And thank you for your help!

Re: Recifal or FO?

You are brave to buy a damaged coral.
I can't say if they(the coral) could carry a contagious bacteria/fungas ,but I never brought any back after tissue damage like that.
Good luck.
There are "coral dips" that may help?

Re: Recifal or FO?

Hello Tom!
