I feed my algae eaters (Amano's Ottos, SAEs) a couple algae wafers every
couple of days.  I do this at lights out, so they feel more protected.  Also
a cucumber or zucchini slice attached to a rock with a rubber band is
relished. Amanos seem to eat everything, so I'd be surprised if healthy ones
couldn't get enough to eat.
