Community Plus
This fresh and saltwater formula is our “I want one food for everything” answer that contains a balanced combination of aquatic animal, algae, yeast, and plant ingredients. It is a great choice for a tank with a wide variety of species. It features whole krill meal as the primary ingredient, which is one of the most widely accepted feed ingredients available anywhere. Everybody loves krill, which also contains high levels of chitin that are beneficial for fin development. Community Plus has moderate protein levels to reduce water fouling and satisfy the needs of a wide variety of species.

Meat Pie
The Meat Pie formula is extremely high in bio-available protein (>55%), and designed for fresh and saltwater carnivores and scavengers. It includes whole sardine meal, whole squid meal, and whole krill meal as its primary ingredients. Meat Pie replicates protein levels of whole aquatic organisms such as fish, crustaceans, insects, and mollusks as a staple diet for carnivores. Plus, it’s great as an occasional treat or for conditioning omnivorous species for breeding or after transport. Meat Pie is also perfect for use in reptiles and amphibians such as various carnivorous species of turtles, newts, and lizards.

Shrimp Soufflé
This fresh and saltwater “scavenger formula” is an omnivore formula specifically designed for aquatic and semi-aquatic invertebrates and mollusk eaters. Shrimp Soufflé is high in calcium, and has double the carotenoid levels of the other Repashy Gel formulas to provide essential nutrients for a strong exoskeleton and great coloration. Omnivorous species of shrimps, crabs, and crayfish, as well as many species of loaches have an extremely high attraction to mollusks, therefore whole squid (a mollusk) is the primary ingredient in this formula to maximize palatability. It has moderate levels of proteins from a combination of algae, aquatic animals, green plants, and yeast to replicate the diverse diet of scavenging species. Shrimp Soufflé is also ideal for omnivorous species, particularly as a color enhancer because of its higher carotenoid levels.

Posted Image

Soilent Green
This fresh and saltwater formula is labeled for “aufwuchs” eaters. Aufwuchs is a combination of green algae, diatoms, and small plants, along with tiny organisms such as insect larvae, crustaceans, rotifers, protozoans, and snails that live with them on the surface of hard substrates such as rocks. Many species of fish such as Mbuna cichlids, various plecos and gobies are specialized to feed on aufwuchs by scraping hard surfaces for whatever nutrients they can find. These species do eat a lot of low-caloric algae, but it is the small meaty treats that they relish and what really makes them grow and thrive. Soilent Green is a no-expense-spared blend of algae (25% of formula), combined with the highest quality whole aquatic animal ingredients, to provide a perfect balance of plant and aquatic animal proteins. Soilent Green is perfect for more herbivorous fish, shrimps, crabs, and snails.

Yep click the links above and place your order :)

They are pre-packaged sizes, and i did not get any 4oz packs this time. I do have 5.3oz ones though of both those kinds.

can you use this stuff like a paste, spread it on a rock/driftwood, let it dry outside the aquarium and then it would last even longer in the tank or is that unnecessary?

Let us know how it works out. It looks very promising and the ingredients, protein levels etc are very good.

But I would like someone to explain how 1 oz of dry matter can turn into 1 lb of food! Logic dictates you get 15 oz of something else.

well right, my understanding is you're taking the concentrated product and diluting it, like orange juice from a can essentially.

I dont think it's anything they've addressed, but I wonder how this would work if you had to feed meds to your fish?

You engineers... lol i think it says approx 1 lb of food. 15oz is pretty close to a pound (16 oz.)

This engineer surmises that the resultant product must be comprised of 1 ounce of "dry" material and 15 ounces of H2O. Is this incorrect?

Maybe the stuff expands. I know that eco-earth( substrate for my tarantula) expands when you add water.

It's about volume.
He mentionned 3 parts water and 1 part powder.
In the seconde video, he used 1/2 cup of power (approx 1 oz, take a lot of room) an 1.5 cups of water.
1 cup of water weight approx 1/2 pound.
That mean 0.75 lb of water plus the 1 oz (0.0625 lb) of powder = 0.8125 lb of food !

I'm also an eng., but I'm the worse at cooking :P

Fed my plecos the shrimp soufflé tonight, I feed and then turn out the lights in my fish room and leave. Well i went back 30 mins later and all traces of the food was gone in every tank except 1, it has zebras and lda105's in it. They seem to be slower to jump on the food then my other tanks of various hypans and pseudas.
