Feeding at night should help. You can also try some other types of foods. My plecos get some blanched zucchini a couple times a week. I use a veggie clip to hold it down. They see it as a real treat!

by blanched you mean that you just soaked it in water for a bit?

Yep! I either boil some water in the microwave or on the stove and just place the zucchini in the water for a minute or two. I make a bunch up at one time and freeze it in freezer bag portions for later use.

You can also offer cucumber and spinach, my pleco loves it.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
