we try to put a piece in about every 2 weeks, sometimes we forget and it goes a month......Every time we put some in all the fish and critters swarm it.....In the 90 community tank, the red glass barbs, both my gouramis (3 Spot Blue, and gold), some of the rainbows i have all eat it......Suprisingly the nerite snails i have dont seem to like their veggies........it really helps a varied diet for your fish......
Now that I have a gold snail in my tank, I give cucumber or zucchini 2-3 times a week and my guppies love it.

The answer to this is very easy. Put a small rock on a part of the lettuce to keep it down. Donít leave the lettuce in the water for to long (1-2 hours max) as it will start to pollute the water.
Found that all my livebearers, as well as bottom feeders, barbs, danios, and my red tailed shark enjoy the heck out of veggies! I peel the zucchini, cucumbers, and the like as well as blanch for 1 minute. I thought that by peeling all of the veggie would be consumed...so far I haven't found any remnence of veggies in the tanks. Maybe my cutting the veggie into 1/2" pieces it helps to get it all eaten as well?
