How do I feed my tetras???

I bought some hikari micro pellets for my neon tetras. The only probelm is they can never work out when there is food! Then my betta comes along and starts gulping them down when they float on the top! Grrrr!!! I pushed them down so they sink to the bottom they catch a few but then my corydoras come along and eat them, once they hit the bottom!!! Grrrrrrr!!!
Although I suppose they are a little distracted establishing there pecking order and all, but still.
Any reccomendations on how to let them eat their food. The cories are just doing there job, but my betta just comes and eats them!
Help please!

To close your eyes will not ease another's pain" - ancient chinese proverb.
You can always do something to help another human or animal, something small could mean the world to them.
Bettas- Johnny and Bill. Both veil tails, but definetly not common.
And two crazy Albino Corydoras, who haven't gotten names yet.

Get some sinking pellets.
The pellets will float for some time and your betta will eat them,then they will start to sink in a matter of minutes.Your tetras will eat them when the're sinking and will normally last only a few for your corys to eat.

The kindness one does for an animal may not change the world........but,it will change the world for that one animal.Stop animal cruelty!!
