Chili Rasboras, CRS, and Betta tank

Im having trouble feeding my rasboras and shrimp with my betta in the tank. Any suggestions?

Firstly, is the betta not eating your baby/juvenile shrimp? In my experience, if you crush whatever food you are feeding them then the rasboras and shrimp will have a better chance of getting small bits of food as it will be floating all over the tank. See if that works?

Bad idea to put shrimps with betta. Please re home Betta ot chilis and shrimps.

I only have a few shrimp and I think they are all males and hes a very mellow fish. The betta doesnt mess with anything else in the tank. Now he may eat juvenile shrimp if there are any but like I said I think they are all male.
The only problem with feeding is the betta eats it all before anything else can.

Depends on what each is eating. If the betta will eat pellets from the bottom, add those first then some floating flakes for the others while he's busy maybe? Also, which rasboras? If small like chilis, they could be fed some frozen baby brine shrimp while the betta could be fed the larger frozen brine shrimp.

I haven't had a betta but know a few people that do. Many have no issues with their betta and shrimp. Just depends on the betta's personality, apparently.

Why you think all are males? But if you need a happy shrimp tank then do only shrimp tank or otherwise with betta put some Bacter Ae to create some biofilm for shrimps to graze on. You know some fish never harm invertebrates when lights are on but once they are off its a different story in tank.
