Cucumber

Those of you who put cucumber in your aquarium for your fish, how long do you leave it in there? Do you fish eat it up pretty quickly? I put in for the 1st time today thinking my CAE's or snails might enjoy it but so far it doesn't appear anyone is interested & I'm wondering how long it can stay in there.

Way back i left it in there for about 5ish days? It depends how nasty it gets. If it starts to fall apart or something odd happens (it will get slightly mushy which is fine) then remove it. It will be ol for a while though

I feed cucumber to my BNP's and leave it over night and take it out in the morning or afternoon.

Just overnight. I wouldn't leave it much longer than 24 hours

I tend to leave it in until it is fully consumed. It kind of helps when You have scavengers in the tank. Here is a video of my blind cave fish going crazy over cucumber/
