Plecos - How long can zucchini stay in a tank?
How long is it safe to leave a small piece of zucchini in a tank when feeding plecostomus? Does it have to be replaced every day? Every 3 days? I just acquired some really nice long fin bristlenose plecos and have no idea regarding the "tank time limit" for leaving fresh veggies in the tank.
I would take it out after 24 hours. Mine are usually all eaten within a couple hours but I have some large piggies that devour it. lol
I usually feed zucchini a couple times a week.
Thanks for the quick response!
I usually leave it in for 24 hours.. and give him a slice every other day.. Seems to be a happy pleco :-)
I also give him cucumber sometimes just to change it up for him. Might try some of that yellow summer squash too, but I haven't tried any yet.
Ive heard of others giving their pleco mango or melon.. but I dunno.. seems to me that something with natural sugars like that would foul the water quickly... but keep in mind I have no scientific reason to think that.. just a feeling.
I've done zucchini, cucumber, yellow squash, and large leaf lettuce.. Plecos, snails, corys, even my flying fox loves it!
