Wakame seaweed is a sea vegetable popular in Japanese cuisine. Despite it’s dark green appearance, it’s biologically a brown algae. Wakame is an excellent source of Riboflavin (vitamin B2), which assists in the absorption and utilization of carbohydrates, fats (lipids) and protein. In addition, Wakame seaweed is high in vitamins A, C, D, E and K. Beyond vitamins, this sea vegetable contains essential minerals and trace elements common in the ocean but often lacking in the aquarium: iron, magnesium, selenium and more.

This “basket” approach ensures your aquarium companions are provided with the multi-faceted diet that’s ideal for herbivores, omnivores — and even carnivores.
