For flake feeding, are you just dropping flake on top of water or dipping into water and let fall?

I have some newer large ones, and they seem to not come up top to feed yet....only 3 days i've had so far...

I fill up a small cup with tank water, put some flakes in the cup, and pour it in. Gets the flakes off the surface of the water and even shy fish end up getting some food.

i use flakes and pellets so everyone gets something... if you put enough flakes they fall anyways.. or put them by the spraybar/output of the filter and it shoots them down

pinch the flakes between your index finger and thumb. place pinched fingers just below the waters surface. release flakes.

this. it also will condition your fish so that if you just splash the top of the water a little they shoot up to the surface (expecting food), presenting themselves for counting, evaluation, or enjoyment.
