Blanched zucchini would probably be better/more palatable to Otos. Definitely try that.

You're correct that your plants are growing "leggy" because they're reaching for the light. You have low lighting. Depending upon the specific plant, there may not be much you can do. Based on your photos above, it doesn't look like you have any species that are tight/compact growers.
