    Hi!
    I have a Bristlenose and I was wondering what is safe to feed it with turtle... in case my turtle eats the Bristlenose's food by accident.
    I looked up spirulina wafers but I only find ones that are called veggie wafers and I know they aren't good for turtles!
    Thank you!

    Oh never mind, I found these spirulina tablets that you can drop into the aquarium or stick to the aquarium glass. Skittles isn't even interested in them. :laugh:

    No problem, we at AFT have seen many inquisitive baby turtles come off second best in encounters with Bristlenose. If you want a safe option, get 3-4 Siamese Algae Eaters - Crossocheilus siamensis).
