New Life Spectrum AlgaeMax and Algae/Gel use a wide range of 9 types of aquatic vegetation: Chlorella Algae, Spirulina, Kelp, Wakame Seaweed, Red Seaweed, Ulva seaweed, Chondrus crispus, Spinosum seaweed and Eucheuma cottonii. Most herbivore diets just use a single source of seaweed. The problem? No one ingredient alone has all the nutrition needed for healthy herbivores. Your aquarium needs veggies in a variety of colors and sources. Too much kelp can also cause digestive problems for fish. Spectrum is the complete herbivore solution.
No-Compromise Formula. New Life Spectrum AlgaeMax takes advantage of new pellet forming processes that let us include more algae and seaweed, while keeping a greater amount of secondary ingredients like whole Antarctic Krill, vitamins and trace elements. Even aquatic herbivores benefit from some invertebrates and proteins ,since it mimics foraging in their natural habitat.
High-Quality Ingredients. In many so-called “herbivore” foods, fish meal is the first ingredient followed by cereals. Green dye is often used to make it look rich in vegetable matter. Both AlgaeMAX and AlgaeGEL have a varied mix of high-grade aquatic plants and phytoplankton as primary ingredients, top-quality marine proteins and the New Life Spectrum nutrition formula. There simply is no comparison.
