They're grazers, and like to have food available as much as possible. I often grab a piece of frozen zucchini, rubber band it to a rock, and just leave it in the tank until it's gone. I picked up the habit from another friend, who swore that even after a couple of days, the zucchini didn't rot, and he's proven himself quite correct in my eyes. It's an easy way to make sure my plecos always have food, and I just add an algae wafer or a couple shrimp pellets from time to time. I'm of the opinion that these guys are scavengers, and will eat anything in the wild, so it's good to give them the option of some meatier stuff from time to time.
