I don't think carrots are good nor do I think tomatoes first carrots are too hard and tough for them to eat tomatoes will increase the ammonia in your fish tank fast but broccoli works with plecos I think apples will work too

Balanced leafy greens, squash, carrots, zucchini, cucumbers are all things I've used when breeding and raising Bristlenose.

I'd stay away from fruit, make sure to remove any uneaten food after 1-2 hours.

I used to feed mine canned green beans. It was great for the fry.

French cut canned green beans, just drain the water and nearly all the salt goes with it. The french cut sink better than the straight cut, usually disappear overnight IME.
