Description

Nourish your finned friends with the scientifically-proven, premium-quality nutrition of Hikari Algae Wafers Fish Food. The original disc-shaped algae diet designed for hard-to-feed Plecostomus and other alga-eating bottom feeders, these nutritious wafers offer a uniquely balanced diet with the high levels of vegetable matter they prefer. Considered the quality leader in aquatic nutrition for decades, Hikari devotes a significant amount of time, money and resources into studying the dietary needs and preferences of fish in both their natural environments and in aquatic laboratory settings to determine the precise balance of nutrients they need in order to thrive in captivity.

Key Benefits
  • Superior nutrition has been scientifically proven by decades of research to meet the dietary needs of Plecostomus and other alga-eating bottom feeders.
  • Includes high levels of vegetable matter that bottom feeders prefer, along with stabilized vitamin C to support immune health.
  • Natural green color is derived from pure-cultured spirulina and other beneficial algaes.
  • Will not dissolve or cloud aquarium water to help keep water quality safe, as well as simplifying tank maintenance.
  • A true original—the wafer-shaped algae diet was introduced by Hikari in 1991 to deliver complete nutrition to hard-to-feed bottom feeders.

    Great for Assassin snails and bristlenose pleco

    By on

    We have a lively crew of assassin snails, and these are torn up by them. They love them! They immediately come out of the sand and hiding places to chow these down, they aren't shy at all! We probably have sixty assassin snails in a 20 gallon tank, you can look in and see maybe five or six at any given time, but drop in one or two of these and they emerge even in daytime and the tank is still lit up. Our Bristle-nose plecostimus loves them too.

    Bottom feeders love these

    By on Top 1000 Contributor

    These wafers don't immediately disintegrate once they hit the water. They remain intact which makes it easier for the plecos and corys to find them. Even vegetarian fish like silver dollars will munch on them. They also don't cloud the water as some wafers do.

    Highly recommend these for your fish. My bottom feeders love them and my guppies too! I feed about a half one every 2 days.
