At my Mom's suggestion I spent a ridiculous amount of money on organic spirulina powder for my tanks. It just came in the mail. But now what?

Put a few drops of liquid vitamin (or tank water) on your pellets to make it wet. Then sprinkle with spirulina powder on top and mix with the pellets. It will stick to the pellets. Too much water and it becomes like sticky elmer's glue.

You can sprinkle the powder on defrosted frozen items like fish fillet or bloodworms.

The fish have to eat the pellets within 10 seconds, otherwise the powder will just end up in your aquarium water.

Gotcha. What happens if it ends up in the water?? I don't use vitamins, but I've thought about it as it's talked about a lot.

it ends up as nutrients for the heterotrophic bacteria in the aquarium

I use it on chopped tilapia and shrimp. Makes a green goopy mess, but fish like it. Does a good job on your fingers too.. careful what you touch!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

That's why I use a spoon or fork to handle the chopped fish ;)
