    I have put it in my tanks before and my fish loved it. It's messy though. Zucchini doesn't mess up your tank so bad.

    It floats so I usually hold it down with something so they can eat it easier, otherwise they just leave it when its floating around.

    My fish don't seem to care for cucumber but love zucchini. I think probably its whatever they get used to. I never really worked with them and the cucumber, we just seem to have zucchini on hand more often.

    Yeah, I've recently discovered that my pleco and my clowns love zucchini. And also as J-Man said,anchor the zucchini somehow so they can really dig in. I have one of those veggie clips with a suction cup so that it will stick to the side of your tank.
