Awesome! I have been wanting to try some but haven't gotten around to ordering any. Please keep us posted on how you like it.

Thanks,

I have had it for a week now. The livebear tank and ancistrus love it, the African Cichlids (Tangs) are so so on it, and the Bettas not so much. The cory cats love it also. I got the community brand.
I think if I were to spend the money, I would continue on the Extreme community as I feed still and also the Omega One community food. Frozen Brine Shrimp also. Also Live Glass worms.
I bought the 8 oz so I will keep feeding and see if they do better as time goes by in the following weeks. I thought they would go crazy over it. Cats and plecos really like it the best. I tried the string method and it worked well for the livebears, Cardinals, and Rasbora Hets.
Would be interested in your comments as you try it.

I bought 4oz of each that Ted was offering in his stock shop @ tedsfishroom.com I figure I'll see how often I use them and order more based off that. If you guys haven't seen it yet check out the videos on teds site.

I have watched the video and it looked like it would work perfectly for fry as it seems to stay in a clump and not break apart. Would make it easier to keep fry full of food as I am unable to feed 3 times per day and they can graze on it.

Yes apparently it takes 24-48 hours to start breaking down.

The gel breaks down over time. The larger the piece the longer it will take to dissolve. It is great for fry because the particle size is small and as the gel dissolves from the outside in the tiny bits are easy for the fry to grab and eat.

I mixed up a small batch right after work to bring to the WMAPC meeting for everyone to test out. I purchased all four varieties from Ted to save a bit on shipping and test them out. The one I mixed up for the meeting was the community formula. I used 1/8cup powder to 3/8cup water. I poured it into a long silicon ice cube tray from ikea. I was able to mix it up and have it fully set in under 15min. I'm impressed at how quickly it sets up and how long it keeps its shape. I fed a small bit that spilled in the gaps between pours to a tank containing neons and GBR's and once one of them started nipping at it they all swarmed in. The tank is bare bottom and the rams would pick at the piece while the neons sat back at ate the tiny bits they missed.

I think I am missing something, the only food I see on the repashy link you provided in the FS section leads me to canned reptile food????
If you don't put a location in your for sale ad that must mean you're willing to deliver.

I ordered some of the shrimp and meat varieties today and will let everyone know how they work out. I've got a buddy bringing over a bunch of fry for me to grow out and I'll be testing the meat pie on them 1st. Lots of shrimp and crays to test the soufflé on as well.

I've updated with prices. I'm not sure what link you were referring to. I hadn't placed a link in the FS ad.

My self cloning cray rips the soilent green apart. I haven't mixed up the souffle for her yet. I love that I can just toss a cube in the tank and the fish poke at it throughout the day. I've figured out a cube size that works for my tanks and is consumed in under 24hours. I even dice up small bits when I have extra time. I just watched a gardneri killie gobble up a 2mm x 2mm cube in one bite. I just picked up those fish from Andi a week ago and that was only the 2nd time i've feed the repashy to the tank since getting them. Apparently they have figured out that it's food fairly quickly.

It was a google search then that led me to this: http://www.store.repashy.com/repashy-superfoods/

Thanks for clearing that up Ted.

Does this stuff have a smell? I might be looking to switch foods as the significant other can't handle the smell in the living room from the food being fed to the show tank. I sort of agree.

The soilent green does when making it. You can store it in the fridge though, so you could make a larger batch and only deal with the smell once.
