Hi Charlie,

How was your mix?

I mixed mine at 3 parts water and 1 part powder. I find it too soft for my liking. However, as far as palatability goes, i can attest that my fish like it. They attacked it right away. I will try to make another mix. This time i will reduce the water say 2 parts water and 1 part powder to get a firmer mixture. One thing for sure is the smell. Smells like freshly grinded fish...say like a "CHUM" you use when deep sea fishing.

Cheers,

Rich, is that total weight or pkg size? For example, would two 4oz pks cost $1.95 or $2.95?

OL Corys attack it - I have a couple other Cory tank, but they're on a top shelf and I don't see them much; but, they are eating it. The other day was the first day (so day 5 of feeding Repashy) that my plecos came out to eat it before lights went out. Needless to say, my fish LOVE it!

I used an icecube tray as a mold, which held 1cup each of Soilent Green and Meat Pie, and it lasted a week. I just made my 2nd batch, which used up the rest of my Meat Pie. I still have lots of NLS on hand, so I think I'll end up mixing up the feeding regime over the course of the week. If I feed Repashy exclusively, I think I'll go broke!

There are 32oz and even 64oz size packs which work out to be a lot cheaper per ounce. There are no 64oz packs in Canada yet but I have some 32oz coming in.

Community Plus and Meat Pie would be best as the L134 & L205 are both omnivores and the L201 Carnivore.

Prob not hot enough. I mixed some meat pie up yesterday and used the same ratio as on the package and its very firm. I put in a measuring bowl, mixed in the powder and put in the microwave for 3 minutes on high. Stirred up and poured into a plastic container to cool.

Mike reheat it to near or boiling point. you can also add some more powder when re-heating.

GOT A HUGE ORDER IN TODAY! Lots of 8oz, 16oz and 32oz sizes available now.

I mixed a batch of the Shrimp Souffle yesterday and every body loved it. It may lead to a better balanced diet.

Glad everyone loved the shrimp souffle! I found the same results as it on my tanks too. I still have not found the fave. food of these 4 kinds for my fish. Everything that gets put in the tank is gone in no time.

For people that could not use Microwave because Boss, Partner or Kids complaining about the smell that lingers for a while you can use hot water. As Rich said make it at least close to the boiling point.

I was having issue with my mixture for a while. I guess i was not using very hot water. You end up with mix that is either watery or mixture that is soft with some oil residue.What i do now is i use a kettle to boil the water. I then pour the water in a mixing glass bowl and mix the powder. I don't even bother transferring the mix in another container to let it coagulate/form. I just let it coagulate/form right in my mixing bowl. After a couple of hours i then take it out of the mixing bowl and cut it in cubes. As far as the proper ratio goes i still like the firmness i get from 1 part powder to 2-2.5 parts water. Cheers.
