I offer my otos and bn plecos pretty much any vegetable I eat, including kale, spinach, romaine, zuchinni,cucumbers, carrots, yellow squash. I pretty much constantly have one veggie or another in the tank plus any algae that grows, so much so that I don't supplement with algae wafers and get good growth nonetheless. All my herbivorous fish eat all these vegetables, but without exception there is one that will instantly be covered with sucking mouths right when it hits the water, lemon cucumber. I'm not sure why they love it so much, after all it pretty much tastes like a cucumber to me, but they go nuts! if you haven't tried it, I would recommend adding it to your rotation and see how it goes. I'd love to know if everybody elses veggie lovers freak out for it like mine. Lucky for my fish I have this years crop from my garden in the freezer just for them!
