I got some oto cats a few days ago and every time I try to feed them my glowlight tetras steal their food. I'm getting very frustrated because ive tried things like distracting them with more food while I drop in the wafer, dropping it in different parts of the tank, and guiding the tetras away from the wafer with a pair of maintenance tongs, but nothing works. They always end up finding and eating the wafer and of course I dont want them to eat the whole thing because its not for them and that would be way too much food for the tetras so I just end up taking it out.

Is there anything I can do to stop this? The only thing I cant do is put it way back in the plants because once it breaks down I wont be able to remove the uneaten food.

Drop in the food at night. Your tetras will be asleep. You can also feed other things, like blanched zucchini
