You know those little foam seals under the NLS jar lids?

Well do you leave those on or take them off? I have been leaving mine on and it's getting annoying because the seal sticks to the rim and leave residue on it...

I leave them on for freshness but not sure it really matters. Replace the tub every 6 months

I always take mine off of every type of pellet I have, never had a problem...or I havent noticed them looking dried out or anything different afterwards. I think your only supposed to leave it on until you use it, and like most other things it has a limited shelf life after you break the seal regaurdless. I'd just do like callistra does and replace it every 6 months and not worry about the seal.

Yeah I replace food every six months too...I assume it keeps fresh enough without the seal...at least I hope it does because it's becoming a pain. Also those seals are made out of polystyrene, which can leach chemicals into food. So idk what is the lesser of two evils lol...

Yeah I think I will just take it off. My only worry was that the food won't be as good for my fish but now I don't think that is even an issue anyway...
