Tetas Not Eating??

i have a 10 gal tank with one guppy, 2 glowlite tetras and 2 neon tetras guppy swims all aound but my tetras stay close to the bottem, when i feed them the guppy eats, but the tetras dont even look at the food, should i buy sinking pellets for them, or do they just like to wait and eat the food off the rocks??

How long ago did you add the fish to the tank? I haven't had any problems with the tetras in my tank eating flake food from top or as it sinks.

tetras dont eat from the top. They will eat flakes as they sink. Make sure u grind the flakes up small enough so that the smaller pieces will sink before the guppies eat them.

maybe thats what is wrong, i will also try feeding them more twice a day, i tried feeding a large amount evey second day and every other day half the ammount, to try to increase their appitites, but that didnt work. Ill keep u posted on what happens.
