Hikari Algae Wafers / Discs

Plecostomus can lose body mass over time when not fed properly. Most people think they can survive eating the algae in the aquarium exclusively, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. They require a nutrient mix that is high in vegetable ingredients, but also require specific amino acids, vitamins and minerals. For this reason, even if you chose to feed fresh vegetables, be sure a formulated diet, like Hikari Algae Wafers, is part of your offering. They also love to scrape their food from surfaces, like driftwood. For this reason our pellet is a disc shape which allows them to feed more instinctually.
