    Thanks for sharing Carrie, great video. I was debating if I should give it a go or not but now I think I will give the Meat Pie blend a try.

    I really like it. I melted my blocks back down (yes, you can do that!) and added more water for the little fish so it's softer. It's working much better for my little guys with a more jello-like viscosity.

    It kinda smells like a barnyard though, lol...

    CanadaPleco is where I got mine from, but there seems to be quite a few retailers online.

    Great for fry, I am still experimenting with it as far as how to introduce it... So far I've tried it shredded, through the garlic press, on a rock, and dangling by a string... lol

    I think I'm going to try thin coats of it, and feed it in thin sheets almost like a jelly flake so it's more familiar.. Might coat some bowls on the weekend and then just peel it off and store it. Some of my fish aren't realizing it's food, but the ones who do realize it eat it all before the others have a chance lol

    hey saw this and thought I'd put it out there,
    I order from Repashy every couple months,though I've never used their fish products(I'm new to the hobby)
    If anyone in Moncton would like to save the shipping costs I can bring it in with my orders,
    I use a lot of their reptile foods and supplements, my orders are large enough they ship mine basically free.
    gotta pay taxes though ,so a 2oz package would be roughly $11

    Anyone tried this with larger cichlids or piranhas?? Piramhas is probably a long shot but is possible

    They have a few different blends, meat, veggie and a community mix... I'm feeding it to everything from killifish fry to angels, everyone seems to be doing well with it as far as I can see.

    A lot of people seem to be using it to feed larger fish species.. I don't keep much in the way of large fish so I'm not much help there, but other people are using it.

    I'm considering trying it. The Beani I suspect will eat it as will my Piraya and Red Bellies. The Elongatus and Rhom on the other hand may take some persistance to get them on it. Seems to be a popular food

    I'm trying shrimp souffle with the snails and crayfish. So far the snails are eating it but Mr. Pinchy is being stubborn...

    We tried to clean Mr. Pinchy with a toothbrush yesterday due to his algae growth problem. It didn't go so well....

    Allen (Repashy) is actually introducing two new formulas this month: "breed and grow" (a food with higher fat content to use for conditioning and grow out, or as a treat) and "super green" (a completely vegetarian food).

    I don't know if we'll be able to get them in Canada right away, but the breed and grow food sounded really excellent - as soon as I can get my hands on some I plan to mix some up with freeze dried tubifex to really send my corys over the moon.

    LOL

    I'm surprised they don't have a product to deal with that.

    "Does your crayfish have an algae problem? Looking a little green around the cephalothorax? Well try our new Mr. Pinchy brand crayfish hygiene brushes . . ." :-D
