While it seems simple to "tutor", I find it does little sometimes. There is a built in "need" to feed fish! I now go for strict orders, even when it is an adult. For small fish loads, I find my test tubes work. Think smaller than normal. Far better for them to be slightly hungry as they are in nature than to come home to all the problems overfeeding brings.
I totally suggest using some way to have definite small amounts pre -measured for them to dump in. If they only come by every three days don't triple the feed! One days supply at a time.
