Veggie question

I was going to try this.
Do you need to blanche the Veggies first? I was going to give my Pleco some Zucchini.

thanks

You can blanche it. Personally, my plecs eat it raw.

Same here, usually cucumbers, romaine lettuce, and zucchini can be used raw. Other veggies like carrots, peas, and such should be blanched first.

I think blanching just makes the veggies sink better.
