Can I feed goldfish with Hikari Algae Wafer ? Not as staple but just to create roughage to prevent / lessen fish constipation.

Yes, just that is a bit hard. You can pound it or soak in water before feed.

Thanks. I crushed a wafer into smaller pieces between my fingers and as usual my fishes ate them like mad although it was their 1st time eating bits of algae wafer.

Just that I was wondering why the next day, 3 of the fishes showed symptoms of fin rot. Do you think there's any connection ?



Anyhow, I've just ruled out any such connection since my other fishes in other tanks didn't show fin-rot the day after I fed them with algae wafers.

Think I'll create another thread later regarding the fin-rot on those 3 fishes.

They are not related unless the wafer debrics has fouled the water.
