Sinks right down
I was using crumbled food for my pleco's but it would float and the cichlids would eat most of it. These wafers sink right to the bottom so the pleco's get a shot at them too
Good food for bottom feeders
This is a quality food that my catfish and other bottom feeders love. It doesn’t cloud the water and I am very happy with this fish food.
The tabs I have been using for a long time always clouded the water for several hours after feeding. API wafers don't do that and the fish love them. The two Plecos I have are several years old now and they are thriving on these wafers.
my pleco does good finding it
My pleco windex is pretty decent at finding it, he isn’t the type to stay on the ground but once he finds it he’s good, hopefully he is finding it in time, I feel like other fish eat it and he isn’t eating.., but I hope he is doing okay, he’s been with me for over a year so….
Plecos and Chinese algae eaters like these
My long-fin chocolate plecos spawned and the fry were having trouble finding food, but not with these wafers. The moment I drop them in the tank the young plecos are on them. Same is true of the adult plecos and my Chinese algae eaters.
Algae Eater food
I do like this algae eater food a lot. It does not cloud the water and my two algae eaters love it.
Wonderful always buy
I have 4 aquariums and my algae eaters range from an inch to 14 inches long and I don’t have much algae grow ever so I use this just adding 3 of these every few days keeps my fellas happy! You want to put them in at night time when these guys like to be active or the other fishes eat them up before my big guys get to them!
Sometimes they float
Bought these for my Pleco, some of the time the wafers sink lik they are supposed to, other times they float. If they would all sink then I would be happy with it, however when they float the Pleco doesnt eat it and the algae has to be fished out of the water with a net.
Almost too tasty
Keeping my cichlids away so the plecos can eat is problematic
Fish love it
My fish love this and there is not a lot of mess. It floats straight to the bottom.
