tough one
 
gouramis mainly eat everything u feed them, red tails usually like vegetables, u should try sinking a cucumber to the bottom of the tank using a wheight. that should give them enough time to have a bite
:-D

Can the same be said for rainbow sharks and cucumbers, then? I've never seen mine eat, and they won't touch the sinking pellets.

My Rainbow shark loves the sinking pellets. I have a little log that he hides in most of the time and there are holes in the top. I drop some of the pellets into his house and have peeked in and he is gobbling them up as quick as can be. Also, I have fed at night and noticed he is out and about picking pellets left over on plants, wood and substrate. I think as long as you have enough food in there, they get plenty.

i don't know if RTS's are nocturnal, but what i do for my pleco is feed my barbs and swords on one side of the tank right before i turn off the light, and drop a few algae wafers in on the other side, hoping to distract the barbs and swords from the wafers. i also feed zucchini once a week for the pleco.
