Yeah... my snail jello isn't mixing. I heated a jar of baby food to boiling and added the gellatin mix and the gellatin just clumbs together and makes really stick lumps in the baby food.

Well, if you've got lumps you either did not use enough gelatin, or you did not mix well.  It ends up looking more like rubber than actual jello... because of the baby food.

I mix it slowly, rather than dumping it all in, I sprinkle it, mix it, spinkle, mix, sprinke... welll....
Eventually I get it all in.

1 jar baby food (higher in calcium the better)
1 packet of unflavored, no sugar added gelatin
Calcium powder
Fish food

Super heat the baby food in microwave, about 1 minutes, in a bowl.  Add calcium, fish food, ect, stir.  Stir in gelatin.  Spoon mixure into a rubbermaid container, deep plate, or mold (something flat and about 1 inch deep will work).  Set (about 10-20 minutes).  Cut into pieces, freeze in single layer. AFTER frozen, load into plastic bag for storage.  Can also be dehydrated (I've been told).

Well that's what it does in my fridge, it dehydrates... I cut it up before I put it in the fridge, small bits, and after it dried out, I mix it around. One bit pre two snails is about the right amount.
I may have said, but I did an informal experiment, and threw 10 in about 2 cups of water, and it took 3-4 days before the water clouded, and the container was sat in the sun to hasten the effect, so I'm thinking it is very tank safe.
I feed early evening, and leave it in there until late morning, and whatever they don't eat, I syphon out.
