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 their shape of mouth
Tropical Algae Wafers� were specifically developed for the hard to feed
plecostomus and other algae eating bottom feeders. Accept no substitutes, request the first and finest, �Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers�.
