Om nom nom, Repashy is delicious- according to fish, anyway

Today I decided to feed the entire fish room Repashy’s Soilent Green. It is primarily used as an Aufwuchs (algae and micro crustaceans) replacement, but I use it as a staple for most of my fish and invertebrates. The first few ingredients are algae (Chlorella and Spirulina), followed by Krill, squid, sardine and alfalfa. To prepare the food, you simply boil water and add 1/4 powder to 3/4 water. Super easy to do and celan up.. It lasts in the refrigerator about 2 weeks, or in the freezer for several months. The powdered form is stable for a year or more, depending on the batch.

Needless to say, it is a pungent but very palatable food for most fish. It is especially helpful for feeding fish like Stiphodons (as well as other gobies), ancistrus plecos, oticinclus, and nerite snails. I figured I would snap a few shots. These were taken within 5 minutes of adding the food to the tanks. I generally will paint it onto driftwood for my grazers, but was under a time crunch today.

I also tried it for the first time with the “big boys”, i.e. the gars and polypterus. It was a smashing success!
