Well my feeding problem with the betta hogging food is over. He still won't scavenge. lol
The swifts have learned to move their butts when they see food and now they're the ones grabbing the food before Cwtch gets it. Fast little buggers they are. They're like hoovers on crack. lol
So now I sprinkle some flakes on one side of the tank and while the little guys are moving in, I hand feed larger flakes to Cwtch one at a time.

Yup dealing with the same thing with my new Betta. I always feed my bottom feeders before I go to bed. Wake up to see a fat Betta searching the bottom for more tasty treats all day long. He prefers the sinking pellets over his own. Actually every fish in that tank of mine loves them. Tetras love nibbling at them while it sinks is amusing to watch. I feel bad for the Cories.
