Algae and Seaweed Foods
Seaweed and algae are the primary source of any herbivorous fishes' natural diet, and you should always supplement your aquarium herbivores with seaweed and algae. Use a clip for easy seaweed feeding, or try an AquaVase seaweed plant ornament for a decorative, long lasting snack. Some fish require large amounts of vegetable roughage to avoid lower-digestive problems (plecos, silver dollars and mbuna cichlids, for instance) and should be regularly fed algae chips or wafers. Plecos will even eat driftwood (make sure it's untreated).
