Personally i just slice them into strips
And remove the seeds. You dont really need
To do that but i find the seeds in my
Filter and its
Gets annoying. Just be sure to rinse with fresh water before placing in tank. I also try to anchor it to the botton or use a seaweed clip in the side if the
Tank so it stays stationary. Some chop
Them into cubes, but this makes
It a bit more
Difficult to clean up uneaten pieces

Run a long vegetable skewer through the slices. It lets you stagger the pieces a bit and keeps them all together at the same time. Then clean-up is usually just pulling the skewer back out.
