No, my fish are NOT spoiled! XD

The green tinge in the picture of the finished gel is not there in real life. It's actually slightly reddish brown. There is a little green in the powder.

I use an icecube tray to make mine. My tank gets half a cube per day, that I cut into 3rds and drop in different places and then they don't have to fight over it. My icecube tray has 14 slots, so I just fill up one side and that is 2 weeks worth. :) It's neat and portioned out, and helps me keep track of the time before it goes bad better. :clapping:

Do you have time to pour it into the tray? Mine solidifies so quickly.

Yep, as long as I am quick about it. If I'm too slow, I just stick it back in for a couple seconds. Most of the time, I can do it in one go though.

Yep I just did it and counted seconds in my head to see how long it took me. I keep the tray right next to the microwave and as soon as it's done I pour it right in. Took me about 15-20 seconds. I always have 1 ugly cube from scraping out the container I used in the microwave and putting that in a cube slot, it gets a little lumpy but other than that, it works pretty good. :)

I know to determine variations in colours while testing water you sometimes need to take out and regard it in natural light. Has anyone looked at their repashy outside or near a window to see if the colour changes at all?

Mine is brown/green. I boil water, add it to the measure amount of dry powder, mix and pour. It looks the exact same as shakaho's. Sometimes I see specs of orange in there as well.

Well, this isn't what experiment I am doing, but here's how much I love my fish AND Repashy. :)

Right now I am testing how Repashy powder looks when exposed to air for long periods, just to see if that might be the discoloration issue. ;)

Of course I do. :) The fish are outside. The color is the same.

OMG. I sent my Christmas buddy a mold very similar to that for her gel food needs! :rofl
