How do I stop my veg floating?
This may well be the daftest question of the week. I have read that plecs like to eat courgette, so decided to try some today. But how do I get the thing to sink? It’s just bobbing about the surface laughing at me!
Spear it with a teaspoon (no sharp edges) or you can buy a thing called a ‘Screwcumber’, which is designed for that very job.

Stick a fork in it!
I’d advise a teaspoon or a ‘Screwcumber’, as mentioned above.
Stick a plant strip into it — the ones that are used to keep bunches of plants together. It will stay at the bottom then.
I use a broken heater sucker attachment. I just attach the courgette to that and then stick it to the side of the tank.
I use plant lead weights to hold down sweet potato — plecs love it.
Outwitted by a courgette. Love it! You need a ‘fish clip’ — they’re about a quid on ebay.
Thanks for all your help, everyone. I think the suction cup wins.
