+1 to the fork, I use a long handled fondu fork so I don't get my hand wet when feeding the snails. haha. Just drop it in the tank, and remove it when done.

I use zucchini, not cucumbers. Also, it sinks naturally

I keep my romaine down and in one spot with seaweed clips. I feed blanched zucchini as well, sinks when itīs thawed and my pleco is all over it.

Use a stainless spoon instead maybe. Put the slice of cucumber through the opposite side of the spoon. Fork has pointy edges.

Also, tie fishing line to the spoon or fork for easy removal.
