I try to feed my frozen foods slowly so that it gets gobbled up before
sinking. However, I will usually see my rainbows scavenging the bottom after
feeding time to find any last tidbits.

I keep otocinclus, cloan loaches, ancistrus, flying fox, and chinese algae
eaters to help keep things tidy. I also recently got some skunk botias but
I'm going to have to get rid of them, they are constantly nipping the tails
of my bows.
