Bottom feeders perform a unique and crucial role in any aquatic ecosystem. Namely, they clean up after all the fish who spend their time swimming around up above. In an artificial underwater environment (such as an aquarium), these types of fish and crustaceans require special care in order to make sure they're getting all the nutrients they need. Ordinary fish food is an unreliable food source for bottom feeders, as other fish will most likely gobble it up before it ever reaches the aquarium floor. Fast sinking foods are ideal for bottom feeders. Luckily, we've got plenty!

For bottom feeders, distract the rest of your fish to ensure that they get their share. Do this by feeding floating or slow sinking foods to the rest of your fish first, then after a few minutes, dropping in the sinking wafer or tablet. Bottom feeders may need a little longer to get to their food, but you can still remove what isn’t eaten in 5 minutes.
Elos Refill Pack for Bottom Feeder Fish Food - The Reef Tank
The best way to make sure that bottom feeders are getting enough to eat is to put food in for them just after the lights go out on the tank (putting lights on a timer makes this easier). Most of these fish are pretty much nocturnal, at least until they have been in a tank for a while and realize that the “flake food fairy” drops food in at about the same time each day. In fact, after enough time, pleco-type fish, which are usually fairly secretive and nocturnal, will often come right up to the water surface when food is presented, turn over on their backs and take the food directly from the water surface.
