How on Earth am I supposed to feed him?

I have a male betta (Milo) in a 10-gallon with 6 harlequin rasboras. They all get along just fine, but the problem is, how am I supposed to feed Milo when the rasboras instantly go into a feeding frenzy? He's never fast enough to get any food.

I have been catching him with a net and moving him to a separate container to feed him. I hate doing this because he's hard to catch and I know it freaks him out. Is there a better way?

How big are the rasboras? Is it possible to feed Milo pellets that are too big for the rasboras? That's how I've prevented my greedy Endlers stealing all my girls' food.

You can cup him and feed him separately and then feed the rasboras while he's still in the cup. Easiest way to do it, I had to do that for my female sorority when I had neons in there :)

I recently got tiny rasboros for my Giants tank and i put the flakes into the flow of the filter so that they go everywhere, the rasboros are busy darting around catching them on that side of the tank.

Then over on Harley's corner, i feed him his pellets while they are to busy to care. every now and then one will dart over and grab a pellet but they like chasing flakes to much to really care about the pellets.
