Chlorella

Hi I have 5 new Black ruby barb and only flaked food for now, but I am taking chlorella suplements myself and was wondering if they would actually eat that since its part of some fish foods, the brand i take is Swanson kyoto five diamond quality , so it is easy to digest and with no contaminants . Would it be ok to give some to them? Thx you very much for your time .

Hello and welcome to TFK I would personally not give the fish that. Fish are able to get what they need from feeding them a good quality flake food. You can also offer them such things as frozen blood worms, or certain fresh vegetables. I do not see any benefit in giving them this product.

I agree. While this might be in fish food, we've no way to tell how much, it might be miniscule, and "overdosing" could be catastrophic. Nutrients and additives are often in specific proportions to each other, and for good reason usually.
