My theory was seeing as they can eat wood, they can probably chew through some broccoli, and I've proven myself correct. It's more nutritious that way and it doesn't get slimy as fast. I just wrap a plant weight around the stem to make it sink.

I love feeding my fish fresh veggies, it just seems so much tastier than algae wafers! But then my bunny gets jealous and she wants some too and then I don't have enough for my dinner :P
