Kuhli loach feeder

I will eventually move my kuhli loaches to my bigger "main tank." My problem is that I have feisty kerri tetras, serpae tetras and blue gouramies that will steal food from literally anyone and anything. When I add tablets for my corydoras, no matter the size, they will chase them off and keep eating them despite them laying on the bottom.

Kuhli loaches are,  to my knowledge, not known for being especially assertive. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of a contraption I could build for my kuhlis? A contraption other fish can't enter. I won't have to worry about them starving if they have access to food there.

I suggest target feeding using a section of pvc pipe cut to length for height of the aquarium. I also suggest feeding floating food at the same time to confuse the Tetra and Gourami.

Oh, could you perhaps link what type of pvc pipe? 

(I am sheltered and don't know stuff)

Sorry but do you mean inches or?  Unfortunately that webpage seems unaccessible in my country 😕

Oh my apologies 2 inches in diameter 4,6, 8, 10ft US measurement.

NP, thank you! I am going to look for those in a hardware store. To make it prettier I consider glueing some Java moss to it
