How to make proper Repashy gel food?

PeaP

Hi.
I bought repashy super green for my otocinclus, but rather if I put too much or too small it never became gel, it was very fluid or very stiff with pieces in it.
Can someone please give me their recipe, because my otocinclus need to eat.
Thank you

I just followed the directions on the bottle as far as ratios go. My problem was a i made too big of a batch at once so a bunch ended up going bad. Make sure to refigerate to help it solidify.

Never had that issue. Just follwed the instructions. I do believe it can be reliquified by heating again so you can adjust the ratio if needed. It does set up quite fast so it's easy to make a mess of it if you stir it for too long.

Hi all,
PeaP it might be worth your time to watch this Australian guys video. The temperature of the water is important according to him.

Good video. I'm actually amazed by how much time he has to mix, fill the trays, and smooth it out. When I make it I get 10-15 seconds before it begins to set and can no longer be manipulated or mixed. In the video he is able to pour it out over 2 minutes after mixing. I mix it just like him. I don't see anything I'm doing differently. I've used it for years and just thought it was supposed to set quickly.

Maybe at has to do with the proportions.

My fish still love it.

If it’s not gelling up then you might want to try hotter water. It needs to be hot enough water to activate the gelatin.
