Recommended spirulina?

Recommended Posts

I was curious which brand of spirulina you all would recommend (if, of course, you feed spirulina). I used to have some, but then noticed that they also contained fish meal (???).

I would assume that any spirullina fish food product would contain other ingredients.  If you want pure spirullina to use in a gel food, go to the health food store and get some much cheaper.  Quality standards for human food exceed those for pet food.

NLS ALgae Max. Love it. Take a look at the ingredients - its top stuff. I don't remember where spirulina is on the ingredients list at all, but it has so many different kinds of algae.

Some are much, much better than others. I feed the zoomed Spirulina flakes and they're awesome. Major growth and color improvement in the fry I fed them to. Those and Paradigm Herbivore are my staple foods for my trops and supplement for my goldfish when I remember to feed it.
