My mounted orchids....
It's not on purpose... there's no fish in at the moment so I'm not too worried but I wanted to check before I rearranged everything.

Eldachleich Oops.. my phone did that...
I indeed meant my aquarium lol..

The fertilizer is urea free...
I'm not exactly sure... today I noticed that it trickles in for a few seconds and drips for a few minutes after that... it's a dilute solution. About 1/4 strength..
It's a 12 gallon.

I'm not too sure what you're asking...

If water that has orchid fertilizer gets into your...."aquarium"? Perhaps?

How much got in? Terrestrial fertilizers often supply nitrogen in the form of urea (which breaks down into ammonia), which will eventually be toxic if it builds up.
