    I am thinking of giving the crew here some supplements to boost their immune systems. I have this irrational fear of fish loss, I suppose, but I am a prior health professional and happen to think vitamins don't hurt anyone or anything so I thought I may try them. (on the boys) I am taking a poll to see what the prevailing wisdom is on the type most used, if indeed any is used at all. I have some real finicky eaters so I cannot depend on their food doing it for me.

    Any opinion will be appreciated as long as it is honest.

    Looking at the Vitamins 101 discussion on the link you provided seems to recommend them for salt-water tanks only.

    I read that section, but the vitamins I was checking out are for freshwater tanks or have versions for both fresh and salt water tanks. Like I said, I would not even be considering this but I have 2 very picky eaters and have had much trouble finding a food or three that they will consent to eat. (My Bettas) They are meat eaters and I already lost one Betta because I gave in to his whims and allowed him to do pretty much as he pleased LOL - nutrition wise. He got so all he wanted was vegetable matter. I am having trouble with freeze-dried and pellet foods and now I spent a small fortune on frozen food and they are turning up their snobby little noses at that too. I just thought maybe I could afford to indulge their picky attitude more if I knew they were at least getting some vitamins.

    Thanks,
