Question Dispensing Pellets?

How many of you have difficulty dispensing those teeny tiny pellets?
I just put mine in a clean tooth pick holder. This one has a twist top lid that is either an open hole or tiny holes. It works great so far
I bet a clean spice container would work well too.
My dad is very detail oriented and had a small glass tray like petri dish layed out with the days rations which he would dole out with a pair of tweezers. I'm too lazy for that. Plus I like to mix it up abit giving Blizzard some blood worm or dried shrimp for a surprise
Anyway How do you all feed your fish?

Yeah I just throw some pellets in there. If the fish seems bloated I add a pinch of epsom salt and fast for two days... it rarely happens though.

I just use my fingers. xD

When it comes to feeding time, I decide what I want to feed them. (NLS Betta pellets, Aqueaon pellets, Flakes, Frozen bloodworms), then I feed them. I use a little leaf that came off a plastic plant to dole out blood worms-- cause I can just pick up one or two at a time with the tip of it and feed.

I just pick what's being fed first (they get two foods a day usually. Bettamin flakes and NLS Small Fish pellets.) make sure my hands are clean and dole out the food as nessecery. They do get a tiny bit bloated but it goes down since I know they just ate and they'll work it off swimming around and being them.
