Yeah, that's my problem, it gets covered in snails before the otos realize it's there.

Just make a bottle trap and use some for bait and clear those pesky snails out of the tank

I fed my first batch of Repashy Soilent Green to my Orange Zebra Otos, CBS, and Amanos yesterday and it was gone within 6 hours. Cube was probably 1/2" by 1/2" and we're talking 23 critters total. They went after it pretty quick. I made the mistake of freezing it all so now I need thaw before I can use again. Truely great stuff. Now if only I can get my Oto's to breed.

You should be able to break it into pieces with a knife while it is frozen. Next time, just cut the gel into usable size pieces before you freeze. If it was gone in six hours, you could probably put a piece in twice that size next time.

Thanks for giving it a go!

I've been using these foods for a month now, I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say that this food is the greatest invention since the aquarium. Not only to my fish love it, but it's absolutely brilliant for feeding fry/shrimplets: rather than having to add food 4 or 5 times a day, I just stick in a cube and they're good for 24+ hours.

PS: Mr. Repashy, if you're looking for ideas for future products, I think it would be just delightful to have pure (whole) freeze dried tubifex worms in gel - or even just a pure gel formula that I could add my own worms to.

Getting FD tubifex to stay on the bottom for my cory's is a major pain, and as soon as they find a clump they send worms flying everywhere. Offering cubes of worm-glacÚ sounds like the perfect solution

(I do plan to try adding tubifex to the available foods as was suggested, but I'd love to have the option of giving my cory's straight worm-balls as a treat.)

Jules-

Allen is getting ready to release a new spawn and grow formula, which is supposed to mimic the fat content of feeding live worms as a conditioning supplement. It wno't be a maintenance diet, but will be a great alternative to feeding tubifex or live or frozen foods.

Rachel beat me to it....... Sent the new labels for the "Spawn & Grow", as well as the "Super Green" Vegan Algae eater formula off to the printer on Friday. We will be shipping to Dealers the third week of June.

Tiger ball approved.




Everyone loves it. I even had dwarf frogs picking at a piece I put in of solient green and dwarf frogs, at least mine, are one of the pickiest eaters out there and usually will only eat 99% bloodworms.


My shrimp love it, my platys love it, otto's, loaches, snails, so far everyone has eaten it. Well except the betta. lol. They're really big surface eaters though and this one comes to his spot to get fed everyday, same time, same spot, so I don't know if he would get used to eating from the bottom.

Allen: Is there a big different between the shrimp and solient green?

msjinkzd and Allen - I look forward to trying out the spawn and grow, but would still like to advocate for a whole-worm gel!

Shrimp souffle has more carotenoids and is more fish/seafood/meat based(geared towards scavengers and piscivores). The soilent green is heavier on the algae/herbivorous matter (more for grazers/algae eaters). The formulas have been fine tuned further, and I will put out another post when I get the revised exact ingredient and nutritional breakdowns.

Thanks. I was always under the impression shrimp did better with a higher veggie matter/lower protein, that's why I went with the solient green over the shrimp stuff.

If I want one for all of my shrimp/fish should I just go for the community repashy if I want to just try out one pack? I've got a mix of shrimp, snails, otos, cories, livebearers, dwarf cichlids, plecos, tetras, bettas, etc so..both carnivores and grazers.
