The food itself is fine and the ingredients are good. The consistency even came out well because I took some tips from their website. However, my comet goldfish, Goldie, didn't like it. He doesn't like the taste and you know that goldfish aren't usually picky! He seemed to not be interested in the smell, but ate one piece eventually. However, he had a hard time chewing it and refused to eat anymore besides that. So now I have a whole container of the stuff just sitting around my freezer. Sticking to Omega One and Hikari I guess. Another thing is that the bottle arrived dented / squished at the top, but not to the point of puncture. Probably Fedex's doing though. So yeah, now I don't know what to do with this and it was pretty expensive :(
My fancy goldfish have adapted well to this food. In just a week of feeding their colors have really improved. Also the sinking nature of the food has solved their buoyancy problems after feeding. If you want bright, saturated colors in your fish and bigger wens, this is the food to do it!
My fish loves this food! He’s a common goldfish, so he tends to love anything I give him, but he has been looking extra bright and healthy since adding repashy gel to his diet about a month ago. I’m still mastering the preparation and amount to feed since I’m new to gel foods. I might be adding too much water during prep and/or over feeding as I have noticed a very slight green tint to my water after feeding. But the tank clears up throughout the day and my filters (hang on back and sponge filter) seem to be handling it well; and this hasn’t caused any issues in my water parameters with regular tank maintenance.
I was not expecting to have to prepare this to feed the fish and store in the refrigerator until it is used up. I understand it is healthy for them.
My fancy goldfish love this stuff and I am so glad to see Chewy has started to carry it!!! Much better for them than feeding pellet or flake food.
