Also, Ted Judy has shown how he makes itand before it sets, puts a string in it so he can hang it from the tank frame.

Even my super-picky Otos (not the ones Rachel sent me - they're the least picky, most active Otos I've EVER had) will eat food like this. Try it, folks.

That is quite brilliant!

You could use a condiment cup or shot glass to fill with the liquid form, rest the suction cup on top until it hardens, and then stick the suction cup on with the newly-formed block of gel.

Will it stick to the smooth surface?

Doesn't stick to smooth surfaces very well. Gotta have something with some texture for it to be solidly in place.

Won't stick too well to plastic, so I don't think the heater holders/suction cup idea will work too well.

Nope, most of my shrimp were off playing D&D on the other side.

It doesn't stick well to the rubber or plastic. A bit of sandpaper helps, but what I ended up doing was just dipping in a piece of nylon mesh paint strainer, then stuck that on the clip. Maybe my surface feeders are just dumb cuz they couldn't figure it out. I even tried getting lots of air bubbles trapped in the gel, hoping it would float, but couldn't get the bubbles to suspend. Maybe one of those tiny battery powered mixers would work, or a cappuccino streamer.

all the cool kids in my tank are usually playing final fantasy something or another. must be a generation thing. the only fish that seem to refuse this is my paradise fish, didn't realize tub raised fish would be so prissy. their like "sir,that is neither a crisp nor raw prawn." one of things i did find out is fish like my angel, (you know fish that stare at food forever before striking?) take few feedings before they figure out how to attack. i'd like to note a behavioral change in my blackspot barb since feeding this food, he has been very aggressive to the females, to the point where i had to put him in time out for two weeks. since feeding this food his aggression towards the females has been reduced. he'll still give them a normal barb chase then stop, maybe grab a bite from the cube. i think the food's constant presence means one less stresser for him and provides a distraction. also he is in full blown breeding garb, chin and snout all rosy filaments at full mast, so he should be more aggressive.

I put it on a suction cup on the side glass and my cardinals still won't go after it. They are pretty but they're equally stupid.

For my otos I put some soilent green on a piece of nori and put that in a cilp. I figure that way when it's gone they can eat the plate, too. Otos haven't gone after it yet (lights are still on), but my ram and cories have been munching.
