I know one guy who simply cuts them into 1" wide sections, screws a new

Zucchini is a staple for our sailfin catfishes and recently acquired pacu.
I slice the zucchini longitudinally into quarter-inch slabs, layer them onto
6-inch square clay floor tiles, and loop heavy waxed twine around the
"open-faced sandwich." This presents a wide, flat feeding surface that
stays in place on the bottom.
