If you have algae feeding fish, this is normally not a problem if they like nibbling on the plants itself or nibbling on the walls like janitor fish. However, there are certain types of cat fish, loaches, and other bottom feeding fish that will not nibble on algae that is located at the top of the aquarium or on aquatic plants. These types of fish could be problematic if you do not have the right type of feed for them because unlike surface feeders or mid level feeders that come up to the surface when you put the fish flakes on top of the aquarium's water, these fishes stay at the bottom.
As an added challenge, they only eat algae and regular fish food like fish flakes made from krill do not appeal to them nor would they want to swim up to the surface to eat that type of meal. Thankfully, sinking algae food is available in the market. This is called the Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers from Pet Store. This feed sinks to the bottom of your aquarium where your bottom feeding pet could get to it. It is made from concentrated algae and it fits their dietary needs, and that is exactly the kind of food they have been looking for. If you keep bottom feeding fish either exclusively or as a complement to other types of fish, feed them with Hikari Tropical Algae Wafers.
