What do you think, can it be safely used for tropical fish?

Can any of our experts look at the Ingredients and Guaranteed Analysis and let me know if this food is safe for fresh water fish?

Someone has to have an idea!

Not an expert but don't think that you need to be to see that you don't get to the algae in product called "True Algae" until the 6th, 7th, and 8th ingredients. Overall it doesn't look much different than most other general fish foods in terms of ingredients (other than they promote some organic certifications). That's not to say that it's not good food. Should be fine to feed. Very similar to most other general tropical fish foods.

If you're actually looking for a true mostly algae product to feed there probably are some better options. I supplement some of my algae eaters with the Omega One dried seaweed sheets. It has one ingredient - dried seaweed (aka macroalgae).

Ha!
I just wanted to run the idea by another hobbyist (or several) and see what others thought. I figure feeding this food won't hurt, but I just wanted to have a 2nd opinion.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, but I just wanted to see what others thought about feeding this fish food (that's marketed to marine fish) to tropical fish.
Thanks for the reply!
