Cobalt Aquatics Spirulina Premium Fish Food Flakes 32 oz (2 lbs)
great food, discus love it
since all my discus like to eat from the bottom, this pellets are great because they sink to the bottom and stay at the open area of my tank where is easy for the fish to get.

Great alternative to spirulina wafers
After more than a year of looking for vegatable/seaweed-based flake alternatives to the typical spirulina disks/wafers meant for plecos and the like, I couldn't be more satisfied to have found Cobalt's Spirulina Flakes.
While my fancy goldfish happily eat the disks -- broken into smaller pieces -- I wanted something that was easier for them to eat, and that wouldn't potentially get lost in the substrate if somehow the goldfish didn't locate every piece.
As other reviewers have noted, Cobalt's Spirulina Flakes are large and remain in tact rather than quickly distintegrate, thereby the flakes stay on the water surface longer than most staple food flakes, ensuring the fish consume most of the food before it plumets to the substrate.
When deciding which size to order I was skeptical the 3oz. container would be enough food, yet didn't want to order double the amount (and nearly double price) in the event the fish didn't take to the flakes. After receiving my order I was surprised at how much 3 ounces of food actually was: the container is taller (but slightly smaller in diameter) than a can of soda.
Bottom line: this size was much more food than I anticipated, and expect that it will last me the better part of a year since I don't use it as a daily staple, feeding it every other day at most.
Cobalt's Spirulina Flakes have thus far proven a great goldfish veggie food alternative to spirulina wafers, as well as the bothersome and messier option of mashed de-shelled peas.
