It's ok nothing special. Most of mine ate it but the mess it makes is insane.

I would rather feed them NLS and fresh veggies

No pun intended in these next comments:

I mix less water with the repashy and it creates a stiffer mixture which does not milk out. When you cut it up with a knife it looks like a piece of leather and I cut it into 1/2 strips 3" wide x 4-5" and just drop it into the tank. It just falls to the bottom due to its density.

The recommended mix is 3 parts water to 1 part powder. I prefer to do a 2 part water to 1 part powder. The end product is a little bit more firmer...

I find that the MW in the small 6oz jar is not as good as the bag formula - it seems to not set up as stiff and milks into the water! I have had to freeze it for a little bit to cut it and put it into the tank and let it thaw so it does not milk up the tank!

That doesn't make any sense at all.  Should be the same stuff, just dumped into a jar or bag.  Did you maybe add more water when you made up a batch from the jar?

 

The stuff sets up hard as can be from the 1 time I made it.

TONS of stores carry it, most Big Als, and northern gecko is the distributer and sells online, thats where you will find the most variety of sizes and kinds.
