My HMPK, Fern, does the same thing... I think he is partially blind. What I do is tap the water with my finger, and when he comes up near the surface I drop the food in. I also use micro pellets (Omega One). He usually ends up finding a few, I also removed all substrate so he can get them off the bottom if he wants
