Hikari Mini Algae Wafers

$ 49.00 until FREE shipping

These mini wafers are great for baby plecos, shrimp, and snails. If you have a 5 gallon tank, it's a great alternative to full sized wafers in nano tanks.

Your fish will probably eat Hikari wafers. But if you've ever glanced at the ingredients list and wondered what "dried bakery product" is or why it's in your fish food, you may want to consider other options.

Compare, for example, the first ten ingredients in Hikari's Mini Algae Wafers (see product description above) to New Life Spectrum's Algaemax: Chlorella seaweed, Ulva seaweed, red seaweed, kelp, Spirulina, wakame seaweed, whole Antarctic krill, giant squid, whole wheat flour, Eucheuma cottonii seaweed.

Your fish will probably eat New Life Spectrum too. If you can't find it at a reasonable price, try other brands like Northfin or Omega One.

Inferior ingredients is not my only criticism of Hikari's wafers. The other problem I have with this product is that it clouds water more than similar products from other brands.

Plecos love them!

These mini wafers are the perfect size for smaller plecos to handle. My plecos come out right away after dropping them in the tank and are all gone by the morning.

Great Staple!

These algae wafers are a stole I use on all of my aquariums (9 and counting). Fish and shrimp love them.

Good pleco food

Not too big, sinks well, pleco goes to town on it. Works for me!
