I've been feeding my plecostomus cucumbers. Cucumbers are cumbersome, no pun intended, so I looked for a solution. I've fed him wafers in the past, but he is extremely happy with the cucumbers. Anyway I read the comments on these wafers, and took a chance. He loves them and so do my other bottom feeders. I recommend this product.

I break these up into small pieces for my Black Moors and as soon as they hit the water they go into a searching frenzy like an addict looking for a lost pipe.
I have not seen an increase in algea in my tank, but the little guys eat them as fast as they hit the water.

Package is ziploc resealable and arrived noticeably fresh. A good amount of food for a low cost.

Highly recommend.

Our plecostomus loves these. We think. As anyone who has ever had a plecostomus can tell you, they are very sneaky and secretive fish. But every night we drop several of these veggie wafers into its tank, and by the morning the wafers are gone. And the plecostomus has grown from about four inches long to over one foot long in less than one year. So, we vote for these wafers as excellent food for a very cool (but sneaky) fish.

We probably have a 100 or so algae eaters in our tank. They have multiplied! When I put these in the tank, they just swarm to them!

I bought these because I just got a Chinese algae eater from Petco and thought these would be a good supplement since I don't have any aquarium plants. I came onto Amazon and saw very favorable reviews, so I decided to try them out.

Scenario:
10-gallon tank with 4 platys and the algae eater
Had the algae eater for 4 days before trying these tablets
Filter, aerator, LED light

I dropped in a wafer and watched until the algae eater found it. He sucked around it for a couple seconds, then ignored it. I left it in the tank for a few hours while I went about my day, and I came back to the wafer dissolving and making the water around it really cloudy. Needless to say, once it was dissolving, he wanted nothing to do with it. I cleaned the tank and tried again with the same results. He just didn't like the wafer. Wouldn't eat it.

While I know that a lot of people are very happy with these, I just wanted to make sure that you're aware that there may be fish that do not like these wafers. Also, if you see that the fish doesn't like them, get them out of there within a small time frame, otherwise you'll have a cloudy, slimy mess.

Also, the Chinese algae eater is doing well off of the regular fish food that sinks to the bottom of the tank for now, but I'm going to need to get a plant. And now I have 5 ounces of algae wafers hanging around. Maybe if I get some ranch...

My corydoras go crazy for these algae wafers. It takes a several hours before they break up and pollute the tank; my corys usually finish half a wafer in a matter of minutes, so that's never been an issue. My neon tetras go after them too, although they have a hard time eating the wafers off the substrate.

Each wafer is about 2 cm in diameter, so I'd recommend breaking them in half. Unlike shrimp pellets and flakes. these algae wafers do not contain copper sulfate, so they are the only things I trust feeding my shrimp as well.
