i know but i prefer to not feed flakes to bottom feeders i think that they should rarely if at all be given to any fish.i prefer to feed my fish pellets.and by top feeders arre pretty fast at feeding time.it looks like little missiles hitting the water.

SAEs have a down-turned mouth of sorts, but I wouldn't consider them "bottom feeders" at all. About the only place they can't easily snag food from is the surface. They'll swirl around mid/high-level vacuuming up everything they can at feeding time. The rest of the day they'll graze off all hard surfaces, decor and substrate.

I think perhaps you have been given some bad information on flake...high quality flake I should say.

i heard that because they have a high surface area they go bad and pollute the tanks water.also that they are hard to keep fresh,like they go bad in a day once you open the can.so none of that is true?
