Ensuring all fish get food

How can I make sure all fish are getting food at feeding time? I have all juveniles but a couple are tiny, so how can I be sure to get food to them?

Feed small live/frozen foods crushed flakes or micro pellets, feed in multiple places (remove lid if necessary). Since they are all young you can feed twice a day. Try watching to see if some aren't getting any.
The majority of fish will scavenge off the bottom for leftovers.

Hello Var...

You feed a variety of flakes, freeze dried, pellets, wafers, frozen and Spirulina. All these have different weights. Some float, some sink slowly and others sink quickly. This allows the fish on different levels to feed at the same time. So, each gets a share.
