    Sadly, I am giving this a go as a more natural treatment before I get to any sort of meds. As I have 1 fish not eating at all and another that is picky.... I will report back

    Any updates on the effectiveness of the orange Phil? I also wonder if having the orange in the tank would cloud or foul the water in some way if I put a full peel into my 75 gallon for 24 hours for example.

    Ive tried it 2-3 months ago when my discus were a bit low in the appetite after a 5 day Vacation , and honestly didn't notice any change in discus appetite whatsoever.
    The water didn't foul for 10 hours with peels in it .
    I wouldn go for a 24 hour my self though. Better replace the peel with a new one after 5-10 hours .
    The water did smell like orange as described by others in this thread.

    Sorry Sean, I didn't see this until now... So as far as effectiveness, I am still up ion the air, I def noticed a pep in the step, I only did it a few days. I found no ill effect with water cloud or anything. I left the peels in a full day and changed each AM.
