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.

Feeding Instructions

Algae Wafers™ discs can be broken into smaller pieces, if desired, for feeding other algae eating tropical or marine fish.

    Better than Tetra brand

    By jblilbear on Oct 9, 2020

    Heavier and better color than cheap Tetra brand. The wafers actually have some weight and drop to the bottom. Less 1 star because it’s a little more costly than I prefer n

    THE Sinking Algae Tablet

    By manaticon on Feb 14, 2020

    I've been in the freshwater aquarium hobby for 16 years, tried many products, many brands. Hikari is THE sinking algae tablet. With every other tablet or wafer I try, either a unacceptable percentage do not sink, or the wafers are not accepted by the fish (and my featherfin catfish is NOT picky!). I will always go out of my way to purchase Hikari over any other algae wafer.

    Great for my turtles

    By kaelyn on Apr 18, 2019

    I rescued 2 red eared sliders a month ago and they refuse to eat their veggies. It was reccomended to me to try these out and they love them. Still working on the real veggies though. They are pretty stubborn.
