A great food for plecos or otos, or as a treat for livebearers.

Not so good for cories or loaches though, but still a very good quality food.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Doesn't cloud water, my fish go nuts over it
Cons: Price

 
My guppies positively devoured these, it's an utter feeding frenzy.

They couldn't eat all of it and it remained in the tank for about 24 hours, yet it still didn't cloud the water or cause an ammonia spike and the guppies grazed on it all day long.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): all the fish love em
Cons: have to feed 8 to fill up my pleco

 
great algea wafers, all the fish tear them up, even the Mbuna. Just the small size (normal actually, just small for an 11" pleco) can be a pain.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Smells sweet, fish love 'em.
Cons: Non-bottom feeders love them too much!

 
Great product. All my catfish love them.

Goldfish adore them too and will spend hours just sucking on one. Throw one wafer into a mature male-filled goldfish aquarium. You'll think you have Oscars!

A severe lack of trichogaster.

Just because your Gourami is sick does not mean it is always Iridovirus, DGIV, Gourami Disease, et cetera.
Look at all the other factors in your tank before coming to this conclusion.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Slow to dissolve. Fish love them
Cons: None so far

 
Have to break them in halve so my pleco's get a chance at them. My mollies, platies, guppy's, sword tails, even my golden gourami love them.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Everything Eats em
Cons: Small mess

 
Plecos, mollies and Guppies love em. The only thing is that as it is eaten it breaks apart a little and is a small mess but not bad at all.

Another product that all my fish enjoy. Even though they do come apart, they still don't cloud the water.

Quality ingredients that plecos love. Not much else to these wafers, they perform as advertised. Hikari produces some quality foods!
