Is there anyway to drop some on either side of the tank? Or even drop some right in front of the pictus so that he's busy then feed the other guy.

I had the same issue with a goldfish eating all the pellets. I now have a very strict feeding order. A single pellet hand fed to the goldfish to keep piggy occupied. Then flakes for the gourmi and the guppies, then pellets for the loaches in one side of the tank and then the rest of the larger pellets on the other side of the tank for the goldfish. Any either order and somebody doesn't get food.

Yeah but my pictus can swallow a hikari wafer whole so runs frantically around the tank like a vacuum cleaner. I will just hand feed the featherfin till it grows and then it is fair game
