Do you feed seaweed?

I see seaweed flats for sale, and they say they are also good for freshwater fish. Anyone use them? What color does your fish prefer? I am getting some Hikari sinking wafers and thought I'd try the seaweed with a veggie clip. I like to feed my fish a wide variety of foods. I just don't know what color to get, as I keep reading it comes in green, red, brown, purple, and whatever else. Would it be worth it? And what color do most freshwater fish prefer?

10 gallon- 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 1 female betta.

20 gallonH - 1 Peacock Gudgeon, 2 Skunk Cories, 1 Sparkling Gourami. , one male betta, 2 nerite snails.

55 gallon - 3 Turquoise Rainbows, 1 Boesemani Rainbow, 2 Australian Rainbow, 4 Gold Dust mollies, 1 L. Dorsigera, 2 White Cloud Mountain Minnows, 1 Honey Gourami, 3 Cherry barb, 1 Koi Angelfish, 4 female betta.

So I'm not sure what "seaweed flats" are but I do feed my african cichlids seaweed. but the fishstore dried version is so messy I prefer to go to a asian market and get the real stuff. They love it. I have only used a green slightly brown kind...not exactly sure what you're talking about. A link or pic would help

OK yes I have tried those.. they make a mess of the tank for a bit. But perfectly fine for freshwater. Seaweed or Zucchini in most of my aquariums is a big hit..it's half a play toy half food to them..And my variety of fish is pretty wide.

Sounds like fun for the fish! Just how bad of a mess does it make? It clear up again though, I presume. Thanks for replying, I think I'll try it.

A mess lol. But yes the filter will clear up what the fish let fly. wet it first use a clip with a suction cup to stick it to the glass.
