Smile Feeding question

I have a community tank containing tetras,rasboras,platys and dwarf goramies. I have been feeding twice a day, frozen brine shrimp or bloodworms in the morning and flake food in the evening. Problem is the tetras and rasboras are such eager eaters that they hoover up most of the food before the platys and goramies get with the program. Wondering if i feed all the food at one time once a day if it would be better. Anyone having dealt with this please offer your suggestions.

You could try sinking pellets along with the floating food, and flakes with the bloodworms and such to try and divide the fish so the food isn't all in the same general area.

Following because I'm seeing the same thing with the over eager tetras and more reserved celestial pearl danios. I usually end up over feeding with crushed flakes and FD tubifex worms (at the same time).
