On a side note, be careful what you feed your rainbows.........Their throat narrows as it goes down to the stomach (unlike most fish) and their has been incidents where these fish have choked on food.........Just something i wanted to point out...........All my rainbows act like they havent eaten in days when i feed them, they are voracious little feeders..........I use a slow feeding method for them since they act this way...........little bit of food, wait 5 minutes and a little more..........My theory is it gives them some time to swallow the food they just gulped up

lol @ river piggies.

My goldfish have also wrestled algae wafers and veggies from the plecos. Gluttons! Well I find them adorable with all the begging at the surface.

I kind of like the feeding station idea, but the cories might be too shy to enter the T at the bottom. You could try to direct the food near plant roots and other similar areas and hope the rainbows don't find them. But if they do, then time for the feeding station. hehe

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.
