I use zucchini. Raw and rinsed well; not blanched. I weigh it down with plant weights. It takes the otos about 24 hours to start going to it, as it needs to soften a bit before they show interest.

OMG. That plant weight idea is *BRILLIANT*

You have no idea how frustrated I"ve been trying to keep those darn slices down to the point I went out and bought an algae clip to try and keep them in place.

I have a ton of plant weights around.... looks like I'll be heading back to my LFS to return it

Just a little update... It seems like thanks to everybody's suggestions I've managed to get them to approach the zucchini. Or maybe they just happen to like laying on it XD

I did. It works out pretty well, though I think the clip might work better of I could train my otos to look for food on the walls of the tank. Every day or two, I'm having to go diving for that weight. :)
