    Aside from getting a veggie clip has anyone got any other clever ideas for holding down a cucumber or any other veggie that will float to the surface... I used a kabob skewer that held it down well in my 8.8 but was wondering a good solution to feeding my rubberlip in my 55....Thanks

    I use a weight and just let it sink to the bottom.

    Ironically I use the veggie clip as the weight lol.

    Edit: you can also pin it down with a magnet sponge.

    I use a rubber band onto a rock, and it works fine. Hope you can figure it out.

    I was thinking about getting 2 small but strong enough magnets to hold them down...but would it be safe for the inhabitants

    If you blanche them they will sink by themselves. I do that with spinach for my snail.

    Yeah..boiling water helps with the sinking..works a treat for speeding up drift wood water logging process too.

    I don't use forks, because I'm not sure they are safe.
    Mine are 100% steel forks, and weigh a ton.
