 Hi  Kush,
 I  usually  just  take  a  plastic  fork  and  press  it  in  the  veggie(cucumber  slice)  and  drop  the  whole  thing  in.
 A  stone  is  tied  at  the  end  of  the  fork  to  make  it  sink.
 
 You  can  also  try  attaching  the  veggie  in  the  aerator  airline  suction  cup.Below  is  a  snapshot  of  the  same  in  my  aquarium

 Babu,  I  like  your  idea  of  using  a  plastic  fork.  I  think  I  am  going  to  try  that  and  use  one  of  my  small  plastic  (cheap)  woodworking  clamps  to  secure  it  to  the  top  edge  of  my  aquarium.

 You  could  take  a  long  thin  stick  (such  as  the  ones  used  to  make  brooms)  and  poke  a  palak  or  lettuce  leaf  through  it...  The  stick  can  then  be  inserted  into  the  tank  vertically  and  you  can  insert  the  bottom  of  the  stick  into  the  gravel...
 
    When  the  food  is  eaten,  you  can  remove  the  stick...
 
 
 
   It  looks  like  this:
 
               \            
                \           
                  \           --->  Thin  stick   
                   \
                ~~~~      ---->  Lettuce  or  any  other  leaf
                      \
                        \
                         \
                           \
 ..................\...........
 ...................\..........
 ....................\.........     --->  Gravel
 ..............................
 
    I  use  this  technique  to  secure  bits  of  liver/heart...

 If  you  intend  to  use  blanched  lettuce  I  dont  think  this  will  work,  the  lettuce  piece  will  break  and  float  away  after  being  submerged  for  5  mins.  I  had  this  problem  even  with  a  veggie  clips.
 
 If  you  are  using  this  method  for  cucumber  or  zucchini  make  sure  you  remove  it  before  it  becomes  mushy.

 I  use  a  thin  strip  of  glass  which  was  a  leftover  after  making  my  tank.  I  sanded  it  to  avoid  sharp  edges  and  use  a  rubber  band  to  fix  the  veggies  to  the  bottom  of  the  strip  and  place  it  where  ever  I  want  in  my  tank.
