    Default Do you feed seaweed to freshwater fish?

    I need to buy some Hikari sinking wafers, and was wondering about the seaweed flats I've seen for sale. I read somewhere online that some freshwater fish just love them. I like to give my fish a big variety (I have over a dozen frozen foods in addition to several pellets and dry food) and wondered if I could just buy a veggie clip for the seaweed. Has anyone here given it to their freshwater fish, and also, I noticed there is green, red, purple, etc. What color should I get? If you feed it, do your fish seem to like it? And what color do they prefer? I have a variety of fish. A few livebearers, a few cichlids (small ones and dwarves), Rainbowfish, and female bettas. Thanks!

    Seaweed is fed to some fresh water species that are very vegetarian. I don't see any on your list.

    And it is included in some prepared fish foods. The issue I would be concerned about is the possible (likely) salt in fresh seaweed.

    Good point from both of you--maybe I need to reconsider this... thank you.

    I feed nori (seaweed) from a local asian market to some of my fish. Have used the stuff for about 2 or 3 years now, no ill effects. The african cichlids love the stuff, also use it to feed the otos and various shrimp.
