Feeding my pleco

Okay so I have my cold water tank and in it I have my three adorable goldfish and a pleco.

The tank is pretty clean so I'm just worried that my pleco isn't eating enough. Is there anything I can do about it?

I use the Hikai Wafers also and once a week or so I blanch some zucchini as a treat for him. He loves zucchini.

Cool thanks for the suggestion.

Is blanching better than just boiling it? I was gonna do some peas for my goldies but not sure the best way to so it.

Blanching and boiling are essentially the same, you just take the veggies out before they're all mush.

For the peas I usually use frozen and put them in a glass dish in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. When they cool off take the skins off and feed the middle to the fish.
