| || | Plecos & Cucumber -- How Long Can You Leave It in the Tank?
I'm pretty new to keeping plecos. We have some bristlenose plecos and they have thoroughly cleaned their tanks of algae. I put some cucumber in their tanks yesterday (held "down" with forks). I can't tell if they've eaten any of the cucumber yet.
How long is it okay to leave the same piece of cucumber in the tank? I don't want them to go hungry now that the tanks are pretty much spotless, but don't want cucumber to go bad in the tanks, either.
Thanks a lot,
