I have been using this for about a year maybe more now. Great prices and a fast shipper. Ingredients are good in it also compared to some others. Is it as good as the expensive stuff? I don't know, as I have never used or wanted to shell out the money for it. My Kasanga's wolf it down and the seem fine with it. I also use their pellets as well, good quality and very comparable to NLS.

thank you guys , I am now pretty between these 2:

1) kens tropheus lover flake

2) YFS super green veggivore flake


In the past one time I use YFS but I think the spirulina was a bit too "dry" or rough. I really like zoomed spirulina too but now can stop hearing about kens.

I would agree with the dry/rough comment! They do like the product though, but by the time I am getting half way through its crumbs. What's the story on Kens?

Ken's Spirulina Max is 33% spirulina, whereas his Tropheus Lover's quite a bit less. However, KSM has so much spirulina that my trophs get lake spots if i feed too much of it. It's a flake I feed 2-3 times a week only, alternating with:

1) Ken's Color+Naturose (a red algae) Flakes for red fish, which made my Moliro more red than NLS did.

2) New Era Algae pellets for non-red fish, containing five different seaweeds. It is cold processed, and it 'goes to pigment' immediately, meaning that in my Kapampa Lime Spot Tropheus, I see a brighter green within ten minutes of feeding.

New Era I tried it none of my fish like it, it also made my water cloudy.
