This sticks really well to wood... I cut a wooden paint stirrer into squares, drilled a hole into the center, and dipped each of them. Freezer after they cool down. To feed, I put a SS screw into the hole to make it sink. Works well.

Regarding the smell - reminds me of Japanese food. Yaki Nori anyone?

Did anyone notice that they get really cold when the gel sets? Must be some endothermic reaction happening there. Super cool.

Is this suitable for apistos?

I haven't tried it with apistos yet, as I don't currently have any. There will hopefully be a new breeding conditioning diet coming out- with apistos specifically in mind. I do feed it to my kribs and they love it.

Does anyone feed this to comunities with aggressive and passive eater? For example GBR and Congo Tetras or Dario Dario with CPDs. My Congos have been starving my GBRs to the point I had to put them in their own tank (flake black worms tubiflex and brine shrimp). I know most are saying "whats the problem with that?" The problem is it my qt tank and they are down stairs out of sight and I want to bring them back into view. So I guess my question is will the more boistrous fish be satiated and let the more passiv eater get a chance? Thanks for any help.

TWINSCREWED: Sometimes it's a hassle but I tend to feed more hands-on in situations like that. I.E., I stay by the tank and watch things. Also put food in different sections of the tank.

I tend to feed on multiple levels in those scenarios- adding a sinking food like repashy to the bototm then floating foods at the surface for those pesky tetras.

Thanks for the info and suggestions, things to try. I have tried splitting my feeding to opposite sides of the tank, with same types and different types. The problem is those congos are so darn quick to pick up on a new food source and wind up splittting and monopolizing both feeding locations. Looks like i'll b ordering some of this food and give it try. Be sending in an order tomorrow, Rachel.

Hi guys,

I am following the powder/water ratio on the packaging, however, the food is disintegrating quite fast as my cories or shrimp peck at it. An inch (but thin) chunk would be gone in an hour, and I can see much of the food particles breaking off and going into the substrate. Should I put less water in for the next mix?

If it is not really firm, and falling apart, it sounds like you aren't getting the water hot enough...... are you mixing small amounts? If so, mix it cold and microwave it. If you are boiling water first, make sure you add the powder to the boiling water in the container it was boiled in. moving the water to a cold container will drop the temp too fast and it will not set properly. 2.5:1 water to powder is my favorite ratio.

I'm going to have shrimp. I have otos and plecos. Then I have lots of community fish including roselines and small tetras.

The surface fish get fed very well already.

What would be my best options?

Soilent green is the best for otos. Either community or shrimp souffle for the others

Soilent green was also a favorite of Charlton Heston until he found out what its main ingredients were LOL. Thanx

Soilent green = SOYLENT green = homonyms or play on word pronunciation, no?

After seeing the videos of fauna all over this food line, I'm going to get some soon. It's nice to give our critters food that they really enjoy and is good for them. Variety is the spice of life. Thanx again for all you do for us aquarists.
