Did you try raw zucchini weighed down?

Sometimes you just have to try different veggies and find what your particular fish likes or doesn't like.

Good veggies are zucchini, yam, cucumber, shelled peas. Blanch any of these to kill bacteria and soften them a bit. They will float unless weighed down.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Quality staple foods will provide the vegetable matter that they need; however, the previous suggestions are good. I've never made any special provisions for vegetable matter with my gourami and they have always done well for me.
