can i feed spirulina(health food) to fish?

i got the idea after seeing a spirulina ad while on the bus. Can i pop open a capsule and dump the powdered spirulina into my tank as food? do they add any stuff that can be harmful to fish?

And yes, i've looked into how to grow infusoria. The problem is that i live in a mosquito-infested area, and while i like my fish, i like not being bitten more :D

Yeah you can use it. Its just a type of algae and a common fishfood ingredient. Though buying the stuff made for fish would probably be cheaper then the human tablets.

Yea but the bulk stuff people buy to add to food is the cheapest stuff, tablets and even fish food stuff is over priced, the bulk bags are best.

you can buy bulk for fish too. Least sells the powder for $17.50 a lb.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
