i have used ice cube trays, but usually just cut them up.

I *might* be working on a feeding system to sell with them, terra cotta stamped jobbies.

Rachel, with the Soilent Green what are you spreading it on and how thick should it be applied if used that way? Does it need a porous surface to stick? Sorry if this has already been discussed.

I spread it on a few things. 1. driftwood, words great, I put it about .5" thick (good grazing surface). 2. terra cotta discs (doesnt' stick as well to these, but still works). 3. ceramic tiles (porous side, not the smooth side so essentially upside down). I also fill escargot shells wtih the foods, as well as coconut huts (for my super overstocked tanks). As far as rocks, a porous surface is easier

This is what I did when I made my first batch last night. I lined a cookie sheet with Saran wrap (wife would've been upset if I made her cookie sheet Green!), then poured the mixture onto it. When it is firm, I scored with a dull knife. Then into the freezer until it is frozen. Once it is frozen you can break them into cube at scored line.

Hey Rachel, is there a difference between the "soilient green" and what he previously had that was called "super green", and if so, is he still making the other as well and you're just not carrying it? Or am I missing something?

Super green was a totally herbivorious/vegan diet. The Soilent is an aufwuchs replacement which also incorporates protein from crustaceans (for grazers of algae on rocks, basically, where there is often a ton of microorganisms ingested along with algae). The other has not been formally released yet. There are several diets still to come.

If you want to get fancy, search "candy molds" "soap molds" or "chocolate molds" on the web.

Depends upon whose kids they are and whether or not you like said kids.
