Admittedly, I'm a tad generous in my feeding habits; however, there is nothing left after about ten minutes except for the veggie rounds that I drop into some of the tanks. I feed once a day. Your nitrate is a little high, but I can't believe that is feeding related with the amount you use. Weekly water changes would probably help with that unless the nitrate is coming from your tap water.

I feed my 14 little guys by sticking my fingers in the tank with a pinch of pellets and going back in forth 'sprinkling' them...so it's not in a straight line, I go several inches back and forth. This way they all have a fair chance at getting something, and the younger ones aren't pushed out of the way...they all have space to get a few bites.

Nothing ever makes it to the bottom, I have Omega One shrimp pellets that I throw in for the Kuhli Loaches. (3 pellets per 5 loaches.)

I think it's almost impossible to underfeed, if you're using a good quality pellet. There are so many micro organisms in the tank that the fish can eat. I constantly see mine nibbling and pecking at the plants, bits of algae, and specks in the water.

Is it possible your angels are bullying them? Or maybe even the Widows? I've heard they can sometimes be aggressive little guys.
