Along with the seaweed, there are other great secondary ingredients including whole antartic krill, alfalfa, vitamins and trace elements. While most other “herbivore” foods have fish meal or shrimp as the main ingredient to save money, New Life Spectrum has chosen to put the dietary needs of your tangs and other herbivores as a priority.
In addition to herbivores such as tangs, blennies and rabbitfish, AlgaeMax is also great for omnivores such as angelfish, clownfish, gobies and many others.
With the popularity of tangs, blennies and other herbivores, it is surprising that a “great” herbivore pellet food has not been available until now. Most flake and pellet foods are carnivore foods with some vegetation mixed in.
Seeing the nine seaweeds in the AlgaeMax ingredient list and how my fish have responded, it definitely qualifies as a “great” herbivore food. Finally, an awesome pellet food that I can feel great about spoiling my tangs with!
