I have kuhli loaches along with shrimp, snails, & dwarf crayfish, so I focus more on feeding the bottom dwellers than just overfeeding the endler's that share the tanks.
I just got Aqueon Bottom Feeder Tablets that everyone seems to love (including the female endler's who routinely pick off the bottom). I also feed algae wafers, frozen brine shrimp (these sink fast), spinach (more veggies will be added with time), and sinking crab pellets. As far as floating food that I'm sure they get some of: flakes every now and then, freeze dried bloodworms, micropellets, and I just started up some live worm cultures which I'm sure will be well accepted.
My loaches are relatively new as well, and I love feeding them about as much as they love feeding time. They're very quick to "hunt" down food and feed peacefully alongside other loaches, cherry shrimp, etc. They're very entertaining little fish, and my guys seem to be doing great with what I've been offering. I normally feed once a day- 1-2 types of food each day (usually one floating, one sinking). Luckily I've got plenty of bottom feeders that seem to eat whatever I throw in there (if not the loaches, then the snails or crays finish up).
