Saving Plecostomus – A Hikari Success Story!
In 1991 when we launched ®Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers™, no other food existed to help keep plecostomus healthy. There were many reports of Plecostomus getting thinner with each passing day. To address this problem, Hikari began researching raw materials and production techniques to develop potential diets. After considerable experimentation, we developed the best ingredient formulation possible. Next we had to develop a pellet the fish would eat, one that wouldn’t dissolve in water and allowed the nutrition to be accessed readily. The revolutionary disk shape was chosen because it complimented the way plecostomus eat. Of course over the years our ®Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers™ have saved many plecos and become a sales leader worldwide. Today, there are many imitations, but the fish that count know nothing is better and it’s their opinion that’s important to Hikari!
The original disk shaped Algae Wafers™ were developed by studying the shape of their mouth

Feed only the amount your fish will completely consume within two (2) hours. Some tropical fish resist a new type of food when changing their diet, continued use will ensure acceptance. Algae Wafers™ discs can be broken into smaller pieces, if desired, for feeding other algae eating tropical or marine fish.
