Administrators Cory Posted April 20, 2022 Administrators Share Posted April 20, 2022 As part of my staying active in the community but out of the comments section of social media, I wanted to start some posts/talk about things I find important in my hobby. The story starts Monday. Randy and I were in a business meeting and I say, I sure do wish we could get Repashy Shrimp Souffle. I loved that stuff, when they discontinued it, I just used Community Plus as it was the closest to that. I then said, why did we stop using it? I remember the fish going nuts for community plus. As does Randy. Fast forward 2 days and I order some up from our warehouse because I remember that I do love it and only stopped feeding it for a couple of reasons. Biggest reason, most days I'm feeding 3+ different test foods from different brands. Always trying to evaluate what is good and we should offer. Also to help develop foods for brands. However I realized that I'm too far into the weeds. 75% of my foods being fed out are testers and not known winners. It used to be that 90% of the foods I fed were known winners like Repashy, xtreme krill flake, hikari fancy guppy food, etc. Boiling water when you don't have it in the fish room is a pain. My new house even has instant hot water. I could now be making repashy in the span of 60 seconds. This removes most of the prep time of boiling water. Now it's just mix, let sit. So I am excited to feed it again as I believe so many species of fish, shrimp and snails thrive in the environment where repashy can be in a tank for many hours continuously feeding these grazers. Plecos, corydoras, livebearers, snails, shrimp are all grazing feeders that do best eating for many hours each day. I believe that making batches a few times a week, and keeping it in the fridge will bring a glow to my fish room that it's been missing. Frozen foods I thought would fill that role but I believe they are in addition to, not instead of Repashy. Another thing that makes me crack up. I had fallen in love with xtreme Krill flakes so much because of the high krill content and that fish love it. Well the main ingredient in the Repashy Community Plus is krill, no wonder it's loved as well. I guess this is like human food, sometimes you forget you love a certain food just because you haven't had it in a long time. I'll take some action shots in the next few days of fish going nuts for it. Should arrive today for me to prepare again. Also while we were "digging into it" we decided to lower prices on Repashy foods. So they are now quite a bit cheaper than previous. We are also bringing back some 3oz containers for the few most popular blends, and are ditching 1 or 2 blends. ones that sold very few each month. If you feed repashy, take some pictures of the fish going nuts and post em up here to share. I suppose I should leave a link to the food so people can look at it easily. https://www.aquariumcoop.com/products/repashy-community-plus Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
