So, recently my clown pleco has not been eating much. I put in a cucumber or zuchini or algae wafer or peas in there before bed and tomarrow its still there. He is stil eating driftwood though, but how can I get him to eat his veggies?

When he's hungry enough he'll eat the veggies. Try something like a cantaloupe slice next, since it has more flavor, and see if he gets into that. Just keep trying different veggies so you can find out what he prefers.

He's actually eating the biofilm on the wood, not the wood itself.

I am having the same trouble with my plecos. I started a simular thread that you might find some good info in
