Default Repashy food dubs n ilangi eating

I love the new repashy food. It comes in powder form and you have to make it yourself. Almost the same way yoummake jello. I do add extra ingredients which includes sprialina poweder, kelp powder, paprika, and krill fines.

All my fish seem to love it.

Here is a video

I don't feed it on the regular but its also a great way to medicate those fish that will only pick at algae as well as the aggressive eaters.

Metro, kanaplex, or paricide-X or any other meds that can be mixed with food can be mixed with it. Just make it and let it cool before blending with some meds like Paricide-X.

And Iv added krill fines (got to get rid of em) and other stuff too.

Would meds still work with warm food? Always thought it was too hot for meds. But I guess I add liquid multivitamins so its the same thing. I feed this everyday along with a small amount of nls Thera a.

Yeah.. let it cool. cant be boiling hot when you mix in the meds.

Looks like you make yours very firm! So that might be hard for you to do.

And don't you fined that you water is cloudy if you feed it everyday?

I'll be honest, it looks messy in the tank, but thanks for sharing.

Water gets cloudy yes but I run 2 fx5 and wet dry with 100 gallons of bio balls along with 2 emporor 400 hob filters in all my tanks. I do 80-90 % water changes twice weekly even to my frontosa tank. I also top off my tanks with 10 gallons of reverse osmosis water. dont have to but i do it anyways.

If your a lazy fish keeper this food is not for you as you have to keep up with water changes. This food works well with wild caught fish fresh from the lake. I have never had any fish not eat it. Another benefit to this food is that it takes time to eat it. My fish will graze at the food for 15 minutes mimicking what they do in the wild. I pack this food with extra spiralina and at 35 bucks a bottle my mixed repashy food gets expensive. I also jam pack this good with kelp powder and krill fines for extra protein and other nutrients.

Diet for all my fish are repashy and nls Thera a every day along with frozen PE mysis twice weekly.
