try pre-soaking the flakes first,put some flakes into some water from the fish tank
let it sit in the cup for a little while them try some,see if that works..

well in order to get a better picture of what you are looking for in terms of advice lets start with some basics..
what size tank?
what kind and what size filter are you running?
heater? size?
what else is in the tank live stock and or decor?
what type up substrate do you have?
do you use a test kit? what kind (strips or liquid)? brand?
how long have you been fish keeping?
how do you treat your water? how often do you do partial water changes (often P/W or W/C for short here)?
lights?

hmmmm i think that may cover most typical questions LOL i know its a lot to ask about but these questions give every one here a better idea of what they are talking about so that we dont steer you wrong..
