Feeding baby bristlenose pleco

I bought the cutest baby bristlenose and I was wondering what I can feed him besides algae wafers?

Plecos should have a piece of driftwood or bogwood to suck on (i'm pretty sure it aids in their digestion). They're omnivores so cucumber, spinach, zucchini, green beans would be good to feed him.

Congrats on your new fishy friend.

I have a baby Bristlenose Pleco as well. They are too cute! He's got some driftwood to chew on. He grazes on the brown algae in my big tropical community tank but also gets some algae wafer every night. I need to try fresh foods. What is really funny is my little guy will chase the other fish away from his wafer.
