Some of them might prefer not to come up to the surface to eat. I have some that would rather pick food off the driftwood and plants, altho they do make a beeline for the surface on brine shrimp day
What I do is turn off the filter and use 2 hands, putting a few pellets on the left and a few on the right. That way you separate the hungry hoards
I try to keep a count on how many pellets go to each fish. It's hard but you have to try and not over feed.
Some of the girls will be more gluttonous than others so it will be easy to count how many they get.
Don't forget to turn the filter back on (like I sometimes do)
