Is there any downside to having excess milt in a spawning tank? Will it pollute the water - in this case milt from two 18" males in approx. 600-800 gallons?

I don't know, but it sure stinks.

The stinky smell of success :) You know that some people eat the stuff? Just like "roe". You might want to stay away from "soft roe" at a restaurant - it isn't roe at all :)

I assume there is no risk to it - it is really mostly protein and not very much can be released from two fish. However it sure clouds up the water.
