rrastro There are different mixes for all different kinds of critters including reptiles.
Check out msjinkzd's thread in the sponsors section.

HybridHerp What animals do you guys normally use this for? Inverts and small fish I assume?
This seems like a really cool idea

rrastro Repashy is a guy who makes specialty pet foods.
They are dehydrated powder mixes that, when added to boiling water in the correct ratio, form an edible gel.
Said gel can be poured into molds to make shapes, slathered on logs, or any other kind of thing you might do with an edible gel.
It's awesome.

Jules My otos don't like Community Plus either, and they're luke warm about Soilent Green, but they love, Love, LOVE the new Super Green formula.

Soujirou Speaking as someone who's never had an oto, I think they need more plant matter in their food. Most people have had success with Soilent Green and you'd probably want to put it on some sort of disc to mimic what they eat normally.

Anyhow my shrimp and snails love Repashy. My pearl gourami will eat a good amount of a hanging cube, but not enough for my liking. My rasboras will also eat tiny falling pieces of it. I still need to figure out a better way to feed them.

If you follow the directions and boil the powder correctly, it should not appear watery at all. It should be like very stiff jello. Water will come out if you use a garlic press though.

VivaDaWolf My otos don't like the community plus I got. : ( They won't touch it. The rams and kribs and other cichlids love it though. The tetras dont eat from the chunks too well, but they love the particles that from other other fish bites.

@marko@ if its too watery try putting less water per unit powder.

most of my bettas like to eat repashy that i smush between my fingers into tiny bits that slowly sink. i also drop a few large chunks to distract the larger fish which swarm them and try to tear them apart.
as far as ive noticed, once the fish realize its food, you cant go wrong. they love it, and its much healthier for them than flakes.

Trickerie I already melted it again, boiled it all in a pot this time. I dont mind the smell, I've smelled much worse lol. Its setting now so we will see. I think I honestly just put a bit more water than I should have.

They do melt again but check for next time. You don't want to go through the smell again

shrimpNewbie I'd also recommend DIY fish food gel. Easy to customize depending on fish needs or preference. Tried it wheN I kept green terrors think they have a DIY video on the tube
