Very beautiful images! How do you apply the fluorescent stain and for how long?

Thank you.

When staining small anthropds (ex.copoped) I put them in to staining solution for a few hours or overnight.
With much larger anthropods ,you need to put them in KOH solution first (some times boiling few minutes) and rinse,then put to the staining solution overnight and rinse again.I just starting adventure with fluorescent staining, it is a good fun.
