    The danio just kind of wasted away. It was the same shape, no lesions, no curvature, (a la fish TB) it would eat, it would swim, it would play with the other danios, it just kept getting skinny.

    I've been leaving the veggies for 24 hours overnight. The cuke started to disintegrate. Did you have any luck with a "starter veggie" to train your plecos?
