I've used the Repashy gel foods for several years now with very good results.  I got some PetSmart Otocinclus to spawn feeding them the Soilent Green variety and continue to feed it to all of my pleco fry.....

Just curious as to whether anyone else was using it.


When i read things that say that wont work....
I mostly smile and think , yeah right 
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Before I retired from the industry, gel foods were making a showing. I tried some (can't remember the brand). Whatever that brand and samples I tried needed a bit more work. They disintegrated in the water after about 30 minutes. I understand that Rapashy gel foods can be used as an all-day feeder. I haven't tried it, but reviews seem to be very good. Glad they worked out melting problem.

I have used it a little. Great food. I know a lot of  breeders who swear by it.

I've used those foods quite a bit.  My best success has been with the more vegetable oriented foods, like Soilent Green.  Not all of my fish like Repashy, and I can't really figure when it's going to be a hit and when it is not.
