Slow sinking pellets, I've tryed putting in pellets to big for cichlids and it just causes two hours of fights over the pellet. Will try an hour after lights out. Will malawis wake and eat in the dark or just leave it??
I use a 1/2" diameter PVC pipe about 2' long. I put the end of the pipe near where my catfish like to hang out and slide the pellets right down to them. My Mbuna are kind of freaked out by the Synodontis, so once the food is near them they stay away.
