I feed Tango in a fairly large breeders cup. He's a pig and if I don't he eats the cory's food. Lee's Three Way Breeder is really large and very clear so it's easier to scoop them up in it because they have a hard time seeing it. It floats in the tank like a big boat. He goes in the cup without protest because he knows I feed him in there. Of course, I've had him for a year and he never runs from me. You could also work on hand-feeding them. That helps to teach them to associate hands with good things. Tango is particularly tame because of this. Just hold a pellet between your fingers just under the water.

You could also try breeder boxing the two pigs since they are the food hounds and then feed the smaller girls. The food hounds are the ones who will usually follow a pellet into a container. You have to be patient. It takes time but they'll learn to trust you if you're gentle with them and patient.

Yes, sibblings can be housed together until aggression starts up, then they need to be separated. Mine are getting big and I do have several males, though they're almost constantly monitored, and there isn't any serious aggression yet....so they're all still together xD
