I made ceviche tonight with red snapper and scallops from a great fishmonger. I have leftovers. Will they be good tomorrow or will I be poisoned?

As long as you keep it very cold, it will be fine for one more day. I would put the bowl containing your ceviche inside a larger bowl filled with ice, cover both tightly with a layer or two of plastic wrap. Put in a cold fridge. You may find you need to squeeze more lime, lemon or orange over it tomorrow to brighten the flavor again.

You definitely won't be poisoned if you refrigerate it. The only thing that happens is that the acid will over "cook" the fish and scallops. They may be a little rubbery. I wonder if draining it would help? It might be worth a try. I would pour the ceviche into a mesh strainer and set the strainer over a bowl and lay plastic wrap or damp paper towels over the strainer.

It won't poison you, but it will be quite unappetizing because the acid that "cooks" the fish will turn it into mush when left that long. Eat it up.

I agree with ChefJune in that the texture is going to quickly break down and go mushy once exposed to acids, and regardless of whether you rinse it or not. Eat it up, or feed it to the cats.
