I read on here somewhere that the algae wafers you feed your plecos,piranhas also like them as well.I was just wondering if anyone has tried this and if they are healthy food for p's?

I feed my Pleco the wafers but I have never seen any of my Ps eat them. They don't even go and check them out when I put them in.

In the wild, Ps usually feed off anything in their habitat including waste and algea. My Ps also eat waffles here and there. They dont usually bite into it like regular food, but play with it and flip it around until it gets soft enough to bite into.

I love hearing the big crunch when they crack down on them.
I love that same sound when my reds bite down on feeders

My reds refuse to swallow the algae wafers I toss in for my pleco's: they 'sniff' at it, and go back to their usual business...

It doesn't hurt. When I feed my huge pleco algae wafers, sometimes my piranhas take one from him and eats them for themselves.
I thought algae wafers are what you are suppose to feed to plecos atleast once a week? Just a thought.
