Description

Feed your algae-eating fish a protein-rich diet scientifically formulated to promote healthy growth and cleaner, clearer water with API algae eater wafers. This complete and balanced diet is ideal for Plecostomus, Ancistrus, Otocinclus and other algae-eating fish. It contains nutritionally-enhanced protein, a rich blend of algae, omega-3 fatty acids and alfalfa for maximum digestion and produces up to 30% less ammonia. The more nutrients your fish digests, the less waste and ammonia are released, resulting in cleaner and clearer water. Feed up to twice a day, and provide only as much as your fish will eat within two hours.

Key Benefits
  • Complete and balanced diet for all algae-eating fish including Plecostomus, Ancistrus and Otociclus.
  • Produces up to 30% less ammonia than competitors. Comes in sinking form.
  • Contains rich blend of algae and omega-3 fatty acids plus alfalfa, a good source of fiber.
  • Yeast, garlic, vitamins C and E help support the immune system.
  • Highly digestible recipe helps reduce waste for cleaner, clearer water.
Precautions

Overfeeding, low palatability, and low quality lead to unconsumed or poorly digested food, which raises the ammonia level in the aquarium, causing cloudy water and even fish death.
Do not overfeed. To accommodate the slower feeding habits of most algae eaters, feed the amount of food your fish will consume within 2 hours.

    Sometimes they float

    By on

    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.

    My rating is for Chewy customer service

    By on

    I'm unable to rate this product, API Algae Eater food for bottom feeders as Zeus, our plecostomus, for whom the food is intended, has never communicated to us his opinion of the food.

    Algae eater food

    By on

    If my fish are happy with the food I give them then I'm happy. They always wait for me to drop the pellets. Even my corys and loaches will eat the pellets along with their own food. Love Chewy! So glad I found them. Such reasonable prices and customer service is great! Thanks Chewy!

    Change In Quality

    By on

    I used to purchase the smaller bottle of this for my pleco and it was great. It sunk to the bottom and was a bigger wafer. I liked them so much I bought the larger size bottle, and I notified a significant quality change. Thinner pellets that refused to sink. My goldfish always eat them before my pleco can. Not sure why the larger size had a quality difference.
