Update!!
Ok, so I went and got 4 more, so there are 7 now. They look SO much happier! I can always see all/most of them! I also got some flake, Omega one (recommended). I put in some flake (7 flakes) and a pellet. They don't seem to find the flake until it's falling. They attacked the pellet though.

The cherry barbs don't top feed, sinking food is best as they will eat it as it falls or will pick it off the bottom. NLS make a very small sinking pellet that works well.

I used to keep a lot of small community fish, and the 1 mm pellet size was good for all of them. They make a 0.5 mm as well, but I only used that for young small fish. Once they made it to the show tank they got 1 mm.

Alright, they said they fed the flakes in store, but the tank was sooooo small they couldn't help but find it!
Next time I'm in I'll see if I can find small pellets.
