"High quality and the fish love it"
I've been on a search for a quality spirulina flake for my Mbunas. Everything advertised as "Spirulina flakes" had spirulina way down on the ingredient list. This is 40% spirulina and it's the first ingredient listed. Even my goldfish and gouramis in my other tanks love it.

"Best flake food"
I wanted to get a flake food that had spirulina in it and knew what the percentage of spirulina was ( in this case 40%). My cichlids go crazy over this food and it is easily consumed by small and large cichlids

"The ONLY spirulina flake to buy."
I've tried a few other spirulina flakes, but this stuff is by far the best. Even better than Omega super kelp. The nutrafin is a nice rigid flake that doen't turn to dust in the can like most others.
The most important thing though, the Mbuna absolutely love it. All of my cichlids actually love it. They prefer it to NLS and dainichi, which are my staple foods. I feed this stuff about three times a week, and the splashfest is always a joy to watch. No other food creates such a ruckus!

"Best food for mbunas"
This is the ONLY food my mbunas will eat. Have tried a few others at LFS recommendation, they just spit the stuff out. They LOVE this stuff and it is obviously good for them as they are very active and have excellent color.

"Good stuff!"
The first thing I noticed about this stuff was the color. It's so dark green it's almost black. Looked and smelled rich. Well, my fish go crazy for it! They must have thought the same thing I did "Wow, good stuff"

"Peacocks will even eat it"
Fed this to mbuna and peacocks/haps, they ALL love it. This stuff HAS lg. and med. flakes period, NOT some flake and a buncha dust. I have noticed more activity and bolder blues/purples in fish after feeding them this compared to Omega, HBH, Ocean Nut. veggie formulas.

"Quality, readily available spirulina flake"
This is good basic herbivore nutrition. I've seen somewhat better results from more expensive, high-end brands, but for the price, you get good, solid, quality spirulina flake.

I also like the can design, it is very easy to place as much flake as you need into the lid and crush it up to the right consistancy.

"Silver Dollars Loved It!"
When I used to keep Silver Dollars I found it was hard to find a decent flake they would eat. This as well as Omega's Supper Veggie Flake seemed to be their favorites.

"Top Quality Spirulina Based Food"
I've been using this food for several months & I'm very pleased with the results. The flakes in my containers were medium-large in size with very little 'powder' remaining. Nutrafin boasts that Spirulina Pacifica (harvested in Kona Hawaii) makes up 30% of this flake food, which is very impressive compared to most of the other so called Spirulina flake foods on the market. Each container also has an easy to read 'best before' date stamped on the bottom so you know the food is fresh, which is often times an over looked detail.
Good price, great product, and I'll continue to use this flake as one of my main Mbuna foods.

"Awesome Mbuna flake."
By far the favorite flake of my mbuna. First ingredient is spirulina, which some other spirulina flakes can not claim. They just go nuts for it. Has large size flakes, and crumbles less easily than other flakes I have used.
One of the cheapest foods I have found as well, making it one of my staple foods for mbuna. Can not go wrong with this food for herbivors.

"My mbunas' all-time favorite."
I stumbled across this in PetSmart one day, and decided to give it a try, as I have mostly mbunae. And as opposed to many "spirulina" flakes, it does seem to have a higher veggei-to-protein ratio. And I must say that my fish go after this stuff harder than anything I throw in the tank. I have to shut the lid after I drop it in, or else I'm cleaning up the water that they slosh over the side when they hit the surface.

"Fish loved it!"
It has a low amount of protein for the herbivores and the omnis love it too. Nice flake size, does not crumble to dust and does not have any "hard chunks" in it like some spirulina flakes. Good price too. They need to make a bigger container, though. I go through pounds of flake a month, this was like a one day appetizer! LOL

"large flakes, doesn't make a mess in the tank"
Unlike the other review, my bottle had very large flakes. Main ingredient is spirulina. I bought this to mix in with Tetra spirulina flakes as I didn't think there was enough of it in the tetra product. I use this along with other cichlid flake food for omnivores.

I decided to try this flake for my haps and found that most of the flakes in the can were powder. I had to throw away half the can since the flakes were so broken down. My fish did seem to like it though

"Good spirulina flakes"
I got some of this for my Ps. saulosi (mbuna) today, and they absolutely love it!

It's reasonably good value for money, and the main ingredient is actually spirulina unlike other brands I've seen.

I'm not totally sure about the quality, but my fish are OK with it :)
