Wingy's "Old School Pico Reef"

I read somewhere about offering blanched zuchini to shrimp.  Could I leave a piece in overnight without fouling the water?  I wouldn't say my tank is really clean but I usually feed the shrimp/crab in the mornings a few days a week.  The trumpet coral is target fed Saturday evening and everything gets fed on Sunday morning before I do a water change.

You could leave it in there for the entire week without fouling the water very much at all since your water is changed weekly. As what isn't eaten breaks down, it may encourage some diatom growth but that can be kept in check with the appropriate CUC (snails/hermits).

Fat and sassy Duncan.  The smaller of the two main heads is larger than the alert badge.

No changes.  I am still battling diatoms.  I have cut the light intensity and time by half, bought a different brand of pellets and am daily changing filter floss but have noticed no significant difference.  I think I need to find something that will eat the diatoms instead.
