I have a 2 inch pleco and he loves cucumber, but what else can he eat?

Sinking wafers/pellets, zucchini, really just about anything. I have found that they aren't particularly picky eaters. Make sure though that you give it a variety of foods.

Also, make sure he has some driftwood.

I agree with the above, but probably a must to have driftwood, a lot of placo species need it. I also feed my potatos , also heard peas but I never really got them to eat it. Try pretty much anything. Also my other fish ushally nibble at their food a little, so pretty good for all the fish. Do you know what kind of Placo it is ?

Diet depends on the species, is it a common pleco?

My pleco absolutely loves zucchini, hes a bristlenose. I put a raw piece in at night and its demolished by night
