Fluval Spec 2.6 Gallons Tank

Hi, I'm starting a nano tank and I have a Fluval Spec 2.6 Gallons. I would like to put these two type of fish in there.

1. Pygmy Cory
2. Galaxy Rasbora

I like the sand look because it's all natural feel to me. Not really interested in aquatic substrate. I would like at least a little bit of low light growing plants in there, not so many though it's only a 2.6 Gallons tank.

My worries is, since the two fish I want to stock in there is so small, how are they able to get food to eat? I will be feeding them Fluval Color Enchancing Flakes.

Neither of those species are appropriate for a 2.6g. Pygmies need at least 10-20g, galaxies bare minimum is probably 5-10g. Honestly, I would only put shrimp in a tank that size. Never the less... shrimp tanks are super fun.
