A few ideas come to mind:
* Stick a stainless steel fork in it.
* Rubber band/tie w fishing line to rock or drift wood.
* Wedge under something stable.
Don't forget to remove the uneaten portion after 24 hours.

I tried sticking it under my driftwood and it didnt work so well.....so I am using the fork method too.....people ask me why there is a fork in my tank when the fish have pulled the zucihini off.

I stick the handle of a spoon through it and slide the cucumber as far down as it will go then just drop it in, it works well.Finally reached 6 tanks... oh god, this addiction is getting serious. 75g mbuna tank, 65g gold severum, 55g OB peacock breeding colony, 30g(36x18) growout, 20 long Dwarf Alto's, 10g fry tank.
If I die young bury me in... An 8x2x2 with versa tops and a large sump for adequate filtration;)

^Will have to try that because I would bet they wouldnt get the slice off as easily.

I ram a fork in mine, too, and throw it in the tank. If you feed the vegetables raw, it doesn't get mushy so fast and sometimes can stay in the tank two days.

thank you I ended up putting a slice of zuccini on one tine of the fork and cucumber on the other and they love it. I saw 5 of them chomping away last night
