How long do you leave veggies in the tank?

Recommended Posts

I know it's bad to overfeed. So, let's say I put in a single leaf of blanched baby kale. There are 10-15 shrimp.


Should I only leave it in there for a few hours? They don't even finish half of it even though most of them crowd around it for the majority of that time.


I usually only leave slices of zucchini or cucumber in there for about three to four hours at most so I don't foul the water too much.

If they are still feeding on it then I think you are fine leaving it in there until they are done.  When I add cucumber I just leave it in the tank since the shrimp are always on it feeding on it.
