Feeding Question.

So, I feed my boy 3 times a day one pellet each time. That is 3 pellets a day.
Today, I decided to feed him lunch, (He hadn't eaten for 5 hours) When I did I stuck my finger inside the tank, showing him that my FINGER means food. My boy ignored the food and continued swimming. I released the pellet and it sunk to the bottom and was lost within the gravel. So, I thought he wouldn't touch it and the Snail would eat it for him and I decided to reefeed him, this time he ate it. Should I refeed him every time his food sinks to the bottom?
Thanks.

You should take uneaten food out of the tank, as it can cause ammonia build up. Also I'm not sure if 3 pellets a day is really enough.

I feed my boys 2 in the morning and 2 at night.

Hmm, Okay. I'll start feeding him on that plan.
