I just took a couple of pics of the Repashy I made yesterday then asked my husband to download them. (He has a computer he uses only for pics and I don't want to mess up what he's got goin on so I have him do that . . .) He just downloaded pics yesterday for me so he looked at the pics to see what I had taken pics of. The look on his face was priceless!! :rofl He says "Why are you taking pics of dog food?" :rofl

I'll post them once they are ready. Keep in mind I added ProGold AND bloodworms to my soilent green so it doesn't look as perfect as the Spawn & Grow. :lol

I know! :feedme

The one on the left is the Spawn & Grow. The one on the right is the concoction of Soilent Green, ProGold and blood worms. It's a little chunky. Next time I won't add as much ProGold as I see Fluffy is a bit floaty after eating it . . .

They love the Spawn & Grow. I've only fed it once. I'll see if Fluffy is floaty after feed that.

(It's the S&G I got from tastyworms with my gift certificate from stakos when I became a subscriber. :heart )

Nice!

I love seeing the different containers/moulds people use, and how they cut it up!

How long does that much food last for you, PSP? I am assuming that's 1 cup of gel at the end. :)

Wow, so much repashy! I made my first batch yesterday and didn't realize it would stink so bad. My mom thought it was disgusting lol.

I only made 1 tbsp powder so not much and the container i used to cool it in was huge so I ended up with really small/thin strips.

Thanks for this thread, so many ideas for improvement!

Last time it lasted like nearly a month, if not a tad longer. But I was supplementing the smaller goldies with progold where as I'm trying to give mostly repashy now. And plus my recent-ish additions are little piglets, so more mouths to feed!

I never cut mine up unless I'm going to freeze it; I just keep it in it's little tupperware and spoon out what I need for each tank.

I wonder if there is a quality control issue with soilent green. When I saw Alex's picture of the green product, I just assumed the color was off. My soilent green powder is brown with a slight green tinge -- not even close to olive. I mix it in water, and it's brown (no green tinge). I nuke the mixture and it's brown. I mix the powder in boiling water, and it's brown.

Mine is very green, and when it's made, looks just like Pearlscale Perfect's. It's never brown.

So there is variable quality.

That is very interesting. I've gone through several different batches of SG, and it's always the same color.

This is another good question for Repashy.

Can you post a picture of yours, Shakaho?

I'm pretty sure you got a bag of community or meat pie by mistake then.

I have a hunch and will be doing an experiment today to see if I am right. I'll post later.

That would be a SERIOUS quality control issue. I'm not the only one who has brown soilent green. When I took a tiny pinch of the powder and put it in a lot of water, the water turned greenish, so there's green stuff in there.

I took some pictures last night and will get them posted, even though the color is off.

Let's get all of this together, and I'll see if I can get a response from the company. :)

Thanks, all, for your thoughtful and extremely helpful contributions. :)

Here's a picture of my powder and the finished gel. This time, I brought the water to a boil, then removed it from heat and stirred in the soilent green.

Usually I stir the powder into the water then microwave. The results are the same.

Shakaho, yours is recognizably Soilent Green, I think. It might be just a bit more brown than mine, but I'm not sure that I would consider it brown, I guess.

Nevertheless, thank you for the pics. It is still something that I would like to ask Repashy in terms of their QC and control for lot to lot variation.

If anyone wants to share pics of the Repashy gels, please do. :)
