  • cucumber & zucchini

    If left in the tank too long will it turn the tank whiteish/ milky looking??
    I forgot to take the uneaten piece out and now the tank doesn't look clear?
    Has any one else done this?
    I'm hoping a couple wc's will help get the milky look out.

    I don't leave mine in more than 12 hours. A couple waterchanges and filter floss should help.

        I've gotten busy and failed to remove uneaten portions. Once it went 3 days! Everything begins to decompose and fungus attacks the uneaten food. A thorough cleaning with a large water change is usually all that is necessary to get things back to normal. I typically remove any uneaten pieces the following day.

          I typically leave my veggies in for 24-48 hours, once it starts getting really soggy and wanting to fall apart I remove it. I've never had cloudy water from it. I agree on the pwcs and fine mechanical media to help clear up your tank.
