Instead of dumping a big chunk of food in the tank and see how things are going, I feed small mouthfulls and drop them in one after another. This way I can monitor how much every fish eats and when they have had enough without messing up the tank (no left-overs).

i cut the food they will be eating into small strips and throw the strips in 1 at the time when 1 sits on the bottom for about 5 mins and they dont touch it put it back with the others in the freezer and wait till the next time to feed

this is the same way I feed it really helps with cleaning and the fish seem to attack the smaller pieces faster than larger ones.

i actually tie a big hunk to some fishing line ( spiderwire is best) and dangle it if you jig the meat ( if u are a fisherman u know what jig is) basically move it up and down they attack and u can keep any pieces from infecting the tank they just take bites of it
you get a decent frenzy and no mess then just pull uneaten food out
you end up throwing some away but after a few attempts u can judge how big a piece u need
later
