In today's aquariums, fish often don't get enough vegetable matter. TetraVeggie Flakes are a nutritious vegetable supplement for all algae grazers.
Feed just the right amount of these Spirulina-enriched flakes to enhance the diets of plant eating tropical fish, marine fish, even Goldfish. TetraVeggie Flakes are Vitamin rich, delivering a range of vitamins including C, E, A, and D3.
this was my first spirulina type food. although its high in protein my fish prefer this over OMEGA veggie flakes. drastic colour improvement on my demasoni's. highly recommended. i dont know why it got bad reviews..
I hate to bash a product but I lost eight tropheus duboisi after feeding a steady diet of this "spirulina" flake. It took a while to narrow it down but the only change to an otherwise healthy tank was the food. Buyer beware for delicate herbivores.
Although my fishes really like it, the flakes crumble easily and i ended up throwing away almost half the can. What a wast of money. Do not recommend it for you.

"Great spirulina flake food"
Does not pretend to be pure algae. It is a vegetable supplement. As such, it's great for all types of cichlids. It's a good base food that should be supplemented with other foods. It's on the inexpensive side of the flake food aisle.
As has been said previously, not a lot of spirulina in this product. It works well for omnivores. My electric yellows and saulosi's really liked it, but I did end up mixing in more Nurafin spirulina flakes into it. I will not be purchasing more of it as there are better flake foods out there. And it does crumble quite easily.
Crumbles easily! Not enough spirulina? I am not sure. They may list it as the 4 th. ingredient but that does not mean that it is not the main ingredient(does it?). Also spirulina by itself has very high protein.....as I recall reading( check that).
I wouldn't recommend using this spirulina flake for your vegitarian Mbuna since this flake has more protein(48%) then some of the non algae flakes i use. Spiruline isn't even the first ingredient, its the fourth. The flakes also crumble really easy and i ended up throwing away half the can. My fish did seem to like it though.
It really shouldn't be called Spirulina Flake, since Spirulina isn't one of the top ingredients, but does provide a good balance of veggies. There are better "Spirulina" flakes but not a bad choice if you want a larger variety of ingredients in your flake.
