Most goldfish like to have an occasional “snack” and algae is a good one. One of the best ways to provide this for your fish is with algae wafers. Algae wafers are small discs or wafers made of compressed vegetable matter and multiple algae.
The vegetable and protein content is optimized to provide your goldfish with the nutrients they need for optimal health and growth. The algae wafers are like a power bar for your goldfish.
Algae Wafers – How much do you feed your goldfish?
You need to be careful not to over feed the goldfish with the wafers. Only add the amount of wafers that your goldfish will be able to eat completely within an hour. If all of the wafers have not been eaten remove them from the aquarium to prevent the goldfish from overeating and possibly causing the water to become cloudy.
The original developer of the algae wafer is Hikari and they are generally regarded as the finest algae wafers available for purchase. One of the features of the Hikari algae wafers is that the discs are designed to sink rapidly to the bottom of the aquarium while retaining the shape of the disc.
This allows less aggressive goldfish to have an opportunity to feed on the discs without having to fight for them with other goldfish. Other bonuses of the Hikari wafers include not clouding the water and being sold in sturdy re-sealable pouches.
Algae wafers bring the power packed vegetables and proteins right to where your goldfish feed – the bottom of your aquarium. So give your goldfish algae wafers to help keep them healthy, happy and satisfied.
