Nutramar Ogo, the newest addition to the Nutramar line of natural foods for marine fish and invertebrates, is a freeze dried gracilaria algae which when soaked in aquarium water re-hydrates to approximately 10 times its dry weight. After full re-hydration Ogo looks as it does in the wild, and fish will accept it just as eagerly. Nutramar Ogo is a high quality solution for feeding marine herbivores and omnivores a natural diet filled with amino acids, vitamin C, zinc, unsaturated fatty acids, and a variety of other essential vitamins and minerals. Gracilaria is perhaps the finest algae for feeding fish. After being fed with gracilaria fish have been shown to be healthier, more colorful, and more active. What`s more, fish love it! Difficult to feed Tangs, Angelfish and various Butterflies are easier to keep and begin to thrive when gracilaria becomes a major portion of their diet. Nutramar Ogo finally solves the issue with the seasonal availability of gracilaria algae. Far superior to the other less nutritious algae substitutes, raw lettuce or spinach, the new availability and long shelf life of Nutramar Ogo ensures your fish never have to go without this fantastic algae diet.
Nutramar Ogo is cultured, freeze dried and bagged in the USA. The excellent quality control throughout the culturing process guarantees optimal composition, virtually eliminating disease and contamination concerns associated with imported foods.
Nutramar Ogo is currently sold in 1/4 oz. packages and re-hydrates to 2 ½ oz of edible product after soaking in aquarium water for 15-30 minutes.

I've used practically all the packaged algae and this one is good but nothing great. I have a Majestic Angel, Yellow Tangs, and Hippo tangs which pick at it but nothing compared to the Julian Sprung's Purple Sea Veggie sheets.
It's probably worthwile for a diet variation though.
