Orchid fertilizer bad for fish?
 
This may sound like a silly question but if some of the water from fertilizing my orchid gets in my diagram still it have negative affects on my fish?

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.

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.

Should I be concerned?

Where is this fertilization trickling into your aquarium from? Or are you purposely dosing it into your aquarium?

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.
