Morning Wood by Repashy Superfoods is a premix designed for xylivore species. A xylivore is a species that feeds on or consumes wood. There are many species in the aquarium and vivarium hobby that can benefit from this diet. For aquarium species this gel is suitable for loricarid catfishes including plecostomus. Snails are also attracted to the gel formula. The original catalog description describes the intended use perfectly.
"Morning Wood: Our Super Firm, Long Lasting Formula for Fish that like to Suck Hard Wood. This freshwater gel premix formula uses wood cellulose and triple the gelling ingredients to create a durable high fiber gel feed that is great for wood rasping species. It also makes an excellent weekend feeder for the community tank. This formula is also very palatable for aquatic snails, and because it lasts a long time, it makes a great “bait” for attracting them to one location where they can easily be culled from the aquarium.”
The unintended use of the gel premix was that Isopods would also benefit from the diet. Ispods have become very popular in recent years as clean up crews (microfauna) for BioActive terrariums and vivariums. Morning Wood allows for a high quality diet to be offered for your cultures to thrive.

To prepare one cup of product, add ¼ cup of powder into ¾ cup of cold water and stir until blended. Microwave until it starts to boil (typically 2-3 minutes), remove and stir. Alternatively, bring water to a boil on stove, remove from heat, and stir in powder. Immediately pour into a storage container or mold, and let sit at room temp until firm. The finished gel can be cut into cubes, shredded, or used as a whole slab. Whatever is not used immediately should be treated as fresh food. It can be stored sealed in refrigerator for up to two weeks, and in freezer for up to six months. To adjust firmness of gel, use more or less water as desired.
