If they are well conditioned, flare them for 30 minutes or so. They should begin to flirt swim the following day. Keep in mind each individual has its own character. Not all will readily flirt swim - some need a longer time/conditioning.
For CT, always use IAL or oak leaves.
Why would you always want to use Oak or IAL?
Is it because of their fins? I remember reading something like that, but i'm not to sure.
