    At your local fish store there will be either small vials or a 16 ounce container of liquid garlic.
    These are very concentrated forms of what you are making. Yes I don’t see anything wrong with what you are doing but it is time consuming and may not be a potent as they type in the bottle. Using the store bought products only requires a few drops and the soak time is just moments.

    Remember this is garlic so it needs to stay in the frige.
    It is worth it to do though as it is a great immunity booster

    When you use the Selcon do you just soak it in Selcon or do you put some tank water into the container as well. I just started using it and wasn't sure the best way to do it.
