How can I make sure all fish are getting food at feeding time? I have all juveniles but a couple are tiny, so how can I be sure to get food to them?

Sprinkle it quickly across the entire tank. If the big guys rush to the first corner, the little guys can get some at the last corner.

Also with sinking pellets the big guys often slurp the food at the surface and the little guys wait for some to fall lower.

Smaller pellets can help, the big fish will still eat the small food, and the smallest can get some food while the big fish are occupied trying to grab the pellets.

I try and feed a combination of sizes so that it will appeal to all sizes of fish in my tank. The big guys tend to go after the bigger pieces while the small guys have a chance at getting the smaller pellets. Sinking pellets are good as some of my smaller fish are shy and will stay near the bottom to eat.
