Moon, that I do not know. I use HBH's Soft n Moist spirulina to make sure all those who'll eat it get all that it provides as a "staple". Kinda like their daily "vitamins". Which is great for cyprinids and centrachids, with sculpins I feed it to their food (guppies) and then feed them immediately (gut loading). But I've yet to discover a good way to get darters to take it, without setting up a whole elaborate scheme for live foods. It seems I have to starve them first to get them to even try it, and that's counterintuitive :)

What about vitamins and other nutrients, how do these foods measure up?
