amano shrimp help

Hey guys I really need help feeding my 5 amano shrimp. Im trying feed my little guys algae wafers but my tetras are just little pigs and dont give the shrimp a chance. Is there any way feed them or just leave them alone and let them feed on algae.

Mine love flakes. Do you have a filter in your tank creating a current? I noticed my filters current and flow drowns the flakes so they sink to the bottom. Yes, my tetras do eat those like little piggies, however, i just put a bunch in there all at once and my shrimp jump on them and devour them haha.

Yeah, I have cheap HOB, but I just got a fluval canister filter 306 yesterday. I didn't set it up yet because I had to make a custom stand for it.
