Level up from the traditional wafers

I find these sink faster and cloud less than the original wafers. Everyone in my tank likes them (pleco, rainbow shark, catfish and even the balas). My only gripe is the artificial colors in these. The fish don’t know (this coloring is for the humans that care for them) just use natural colors.

Fed for at least 18 years, same dude

He was about 2" when I got him in 2004. He is/was 12" long. Getting kinda crooked cause he's old. I believe the only reason he didn't get bigger because he is only in a 40 gal tank. He's nicely plump, I feed him one wafer every other day except Sun/Mon.

My pleco is hungry

My poor pleco is acting like he is starving! He is coming to the top to eat the other food with his tank buddies. I had been feeding him three of these a day, like his usually wafers. When I did a water change and vacuumed the bottom of the tank, I found the reason why. These wafers don’t ever soften up! He can’t eat them! I watched him today. He has been trying to eat one for an hour now! Good thing I have some zucchini in the freezer for him. I attached a photo. The chip is in his mouth, he is trying to eat it. Poor buddy. I definitely won’t get this kind again! The solid green ones were ok.

Hello, I have to drop a few of these in because my snail waits for these and my plecos have to fight over it with my large mystery snail lol. It’s a race!These are my primary food for my Algae eaters!

Cloudy water & fish won't eat it

I really wanted to believe the better reviews here, so I bought this for my common pleco and my siamese algae eater. Not only did they avoid these wafers like the plague, but none of my 5 food-greedy goldfish would touch them either! The food would sit on the bottom and swell up to a slimy, moldy puffball within a few hours that ended up clouding the water. I did a full water change (30 gallon tank) and gave the wafers a second chance, putting them in the tank to get the same results: super cloudy water and no food eaten. I had to do another full change and fed fish with other foods and had no problems afterward. I wish Chewy would accept exchanges or returns for this, as I had only taken about 8-10 wafers from the whole bag. I do not recommend this product.

Clouds my water but the fish like them

I got these because our usual brand was out of stock. The fish seem to love the taste but the wafers make a mess out if my tank for a bit. Tiny particulate everywhere. I won’t get them again.

Pleco likes it but they don't break easy

My baby bristlenose pleco likes it but they're so big and I only have the one pleco (in a smaller tank waiting till he can get bigger to go in with my Oscars) so I have to break it into smaller pieces and they don't break easy. That's the only reason I didn't give it five stars. When you break it they don't break in half the outside ring breaks off and your left with giving them the algae tablet or the green part. Had I known this I probably would have went with a different algae tablet while he was a baby until he was big enough to eat the whole thing. Thought I would share in case someone was looking to get these for a baby pleco.
