Food that sticks to the glass?

There is this food called Masstick for marine fish where you just stick it on the glass and it doesn't get your nitrates all crazy. Is there such a thing for freshwater fish as well?

Freeze dried black worm cubes. They stick to glass and the fish slowely eat off the cubes. Been feeding these to my discus for 15 years. Really clean food.

I typically buy the one with spinach:

Looks like you're looking for something like Sera O-Nip tabs.

I've never had that much luck with freeze dried worm cubes. They always either pop up, or the fish pull them off, but regardless, there's usually some amount of floating worm cube in the tank. Nothing wrong with it, but it just doesn't stick as well as I'd like it to.
Blue Ridge Reef and nightpaws like this.

So many fish/plants/inverts to keep, not enough aquaria.

I have never had luck getting them to stay. They stick to the glass but then once the fish really go to town they rip it off.
