Hikari Algae Wafers


Misleadingly marketing fish food as being the “#1 Selling Plecostomus Diet Worldwide” and including images of catfish on the label when the most predominant ingredients (fish meal and starches) cause digestive problems in catfish, which can lead to infection and increases the risk of mortality

Misleadingly marketing fish food as “Ideal for Algae Eaters” and containing pure-cultured spirulina and a “Perfect Balance of Vegetables & Proteins” when the ingredients list shows that products contain more fish meal and cereal than algae ingredients (dried seaweed meal and spirulina)
