  • Disc-shaped fish food rich in vegetable matter ideal for Plecostomus and other freshwater and marine herbivores
  • Nutritious sinking wafers with added vitamins and minerals support overall growth, health, and coloration
  • Uniquely-shaped algae wafer discs retain their shape longer to encourage natural foraging behavior

Nutrition specifically formulated for the hard-to-feed Plecostomus, but excellent for all algae eaters. Hikari Algae Wafers contain high levels of vegetable matter that algae eaters prefer and love. Vegetable and protein content is balanced to ensure nutrition for proper health and growth. Unique, disc-shaped wafers sink rapidly while retaining its shape allowing less aggressive species to feed at their leisure without the wafer dissolving or clouding aquarium water. Vegetable-rich Algae Wafers are also great for saltwater fish and other marine herbivores.

Hikari® Algae Wafers™ measures approximately 3/4" in diameter.
