Almost all my fish eat off the bottom. I think if theres food left in the tank after the fish have eaten their fill, thats overfeeding. Too, in my community tanks - if I didn't feed enough for the food to reach the bottom, not all the fish would get their share. I've found with some combinations of fish, "overfeeding" is a necessity. And so are snails, to eat the leftover food
