Cooked foods tend to sink while raw foods tend to float. I make shish kebabs of assorted vegies and fruits- skewer the pieces and clip to the glass vertically using a veggie clip.
You can rubber-band the to a rock or driftwood too.

I tried cauliflower and apple once, and my pleco didn't touch them. Im going to put a baby carrot in tonight and see if there's any chew marks come morning. He doesn't move much during the day, I've never seen him actively eat.

None of mine were keen on apple either. Did you cook the cauliflower? Most vegies can be left in for a couple of days. I always leave any new vegie I'm trying out for a couple of says before removing. Sometimes it takes a while for them to realize they're supposed to eat it

During the day-time he is almost always hanging on the back of the HOB pick up tube. After the lights go out I don't know what he does, but there's always pleco poop so he must be eating something!

I used a masonry bit and drilled a hole in a flat rock, tied some bakers twine to it and rubber band the zuchini on it. Every other day I put 2 slices in. They come to it within a few minutes. When the bns wander off the cories all come in and eat whats left of the insides of it.
