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.
