Fish food question

I bought some Nutrafin max sinking complete food tablets online for the hermits etc. in my tank. I was reading to label and saw this: phosphorus min .6% max .9% ash max 9%. Should I see if I can return it? I do not want to deal with cyano.

First and foremost, I wouldn't bother feeding the hermits. Given the "newness" of your tank, there is still plenty of nutrient to sustain them even without a fish population at this point. If your a mind to feed the tank, do so to maintain the bacterial populations instead. In which I would use raw meaty seafoods that are less polluting in terms of what you've mentioned above. For the most part, all dried foods will contribute to this.
