Thanks. I realize that the fish will eat off the bottom mine already scarf up the flakes that settle out. I haven't yet got any bottom feeders, ie. cory or oto. But I will soon, will that cause any ruckus in the tank when added.
BTW, I discovered a hazard in feeding flakes. I used to crumble them up between my fingers when I feed. Recently, I felt a sticking sensation in a finger, couldn't see anything with the naked eye. several days later I noticed a raised spot in that finger, still didn't see anything. A couple of days later I noticed a yellow spot on top of the bump. I popped the bump and saw a sliver of what looked like some flake. So, beware the hostile flakes. ROFLMAO.
