How To Feed Kuhli Loaches. Is A Dish Okay?

    Can you please look at my current aquarium setup right now. I have a clear glass dish in the lower right. I vacuum up yesterdays food each morning, then I put a new variety of food whether omega one flakes, omega one shrimp pellets, hikari sinking wafers, or new spectrum life small fish pellets.

    Is that a good way to do it? My kuhli loaches hide all day. Sometimes one to three adventurous kuhli loaches might do lots of glass surfing dances maybe late into the afternoon.

    Maybe if i didn't use a glass dish, but just put food in the substrate, then they would have to scavenging for food and not have it so easy?

    Also, is it okay to just leave food in the dish and that is all my feeding for the day? The food i use doesn't get messy or anything it stays self contained and just in the dish.

    Here is a pic of the front of my aquarium and back. They mostly hide in the black pipe structure and also under the large airstone

    Should i add more decorations or move anything? I am not sure about that three white pipes on the left, i used to have a cone cave for kuhli loaches but they didn't use it, so i took it out. I was also thinking about moving the black pipe cave all the way to the left and therefore the kuhli loaches would have to travel more to get to the dish.

    instead of a dish, i could just sprinkle food in the middle too.

    i am not sure about my arrangment

    what do you think?

    thanks

    it appears that my kuhli loaches rather scavenage for food in the substrate rather than being easily given it in my dish. so i will look to rearranging that soon i guess.
