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 new formula Algae Wafers are eagerly taken by my three clown loaches and two ancistrus plecos.”

I like to feed fish only high quality food from the best brands, and I feed them a variety of food for a more balanced diet.

“When I feed my plecos it usually takes them about a minute or so to start eating another brand… when I fed yours [Hikari Algae Wafers] they began eating in less than 30 seconds. Normally there are pieces left over, not with yours, they ate it all! When I fed my corys your Sinking Wafers they looked like a bunch of piranhas eating the food. They have never acted like this before. All I can say is my fish sure act different when I used your products, it was like they just could not resist your food. I want more.”
