    A friend gave me these awful looking algae wafers, insisting her fish were all over them. I tried to ignore the bright green and dropped a couple in both tanks. The yoyos stuck to them like flies at a picnic (as did the kuhlis and angels for that matter), but the other tank got a passing interest from the cories, a competitive hog-pig fest from the guppies, but an all-out stacks on food fight from the MTS! I've never seen them move fast, let alone this fast. In a matter of maybe a minute both wafers were covered. They can stay a treat for the yoyos only. My MTS dont need breeding encouragement by fattening up with too much food! Also, the yoyos just don't seem to eat my snails! I guess they prefer horrible artificial wafers? Maybe it's the McDonalds of fish food.

    There aren't many fish that eat MTS - I would not expect the loaches to eat them - none of mine do. Even puffers have difficulty with them.

    Hehe thanks guys.
    Akari, she didn't give me any packaging. She just chucked a handful in a ziplock bag. It's not a green found in nature, that's for sure!

    Jaysee, do you know any fish that will eat them? Not sure if my tank is big enough for some clown loaches. It's only 4 ft.

    Crayfish. That's the only thing I know that eats them. I don't know that any loaches will. Long term, no it's not enough for the clowns.

    Larger cichlids will also eat them, from what I've read. I've been thinking about getting some to stir up the sand substrate a bit, but I don't want to risk them breeding too much or simply becoming snacks.

    I have a feeling they came from one of those unlabeled bulk packs fish shops carry. She's not into premium foods yet lol.

    I used to love that movie when I was a kid, even though it grossed me out, lol.

    I think assassin snails are unavailable. Crayfish eh? And cichlids? I must do more reading. Thanks guys.
