 Algae Wafers

I make sure that my fish have a good variety of different food.  I certainly give them flakes, but also make a point of giving them food in other forms.  One of the many forms of fish food is algae wafers. 

Hikari© Algae Wafers

There are many different companies that make algae wafers or similar algae products.  I have tried quite a few.  All of them are worth using, but one good one is the Hikari© brand.  Our fish like it and it is also the popular with our customers.  Our customers include fish breeders.  This is not the cheapest brand of algae wafers, but is certainly a good one.

It is designed for algae eating fish and others that need plenty of vegetable matter in their diet.
I use them particularly in our Bristlenese Catfish breeding tank.
However, when I put one in any of our aquariums practically all the different types of fish attack the wafer.

Fish like the half beak might not eat it because they very rarely go far from the surface, but off hand I cannot remember any other of our many types of fish that do not eat them.


Most of the ingredients are similar to those in most fish food, like fish meal and wheat flour, but there is a higher proportion of vegetable food including  Spirulina algae.


This product comes in several different sized packets up to the 1 Kilogram breeder’s bag.
