Zuchini may work but oranges are full of vitamin C, and that works my fish love it. I feed my gouramis apple occasionally and that works really well.

Zucchini and yam are good veggies, in addition to what's been posted. And blanched spinach. Different fish have different tastes sometimes.

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]
