Repashy is good. Myself, I usually mix 1/4 cup morning wood with 1/4 cup soilent green. Pour cooked liquid onto a dinner plate to gel, then cut into little squares. Freeze them in a single layer then break off pieces to feed over a few weeks.

What is your mix ratio of powder to water? I thought I would be able to pour what I mixed up but it was to dry. The L104 devoured the cubes I dropped in last night, pleco fry were still working on theirs, cherry shrimp didn't appear to have touched it, the glass shrimp were green, and my silver dollars are undecided.
My plan is to mix up and freeze once I get the ratios figured out.

Sorry, I meant 1:2. A total of 1/2 cup powder mixed with 1 cup boiling water.

Fry are definitely chowing down on the Repashy. L104 appear to be as well as the cubes are gone. My SD are sampling it but still don't know if they like it. My chocolate Cichlid doesn't spit it out.

I was able to remove fry from the new BNP male and an albino female.

Was moving stuff of the desk and found a BNP fry left over from the move on 26DEC just chilling in the bottom of the container. Moved it to the 29g planted tank as it needs some algea removal.

Also great for Repashy are icemaking trays designed to make small ice cubes. You can freeze several months worth over a couple days and zip lock bag the cubes in the freezer.

I did consider getting some mini ice cube trays for that purpose. At a 1:2 ratio the Repashy sets up pretty quick. I have some 100mm square freezer boxes and I mix up 1/3 cup Rapashy powder with 2/3 cup water and the cube it after it is solid. Gives me a couple weeks worth.
