emerald crab feeding

just started a tank and am concerned about emerald not getting enough to eat. I have 2 clowns, a bangaii cardinal, and 3 blue/chromis who are straight vultures! between the 3 chromis, they do not let any food get out of their grasp (leaving barely enough for my other 3 guys). I don't have much algae for the emerald to munch on, so I'm thinking I will need to supplement his diet. I've heard seaweed sheets will work, as well as pieces of shrimp. how exactly do I ensure he gets it? I can clip the seaweed, but he obviously cant get up the glass to it. and what about the shrimp? do I need to buy these specially, or can I just get some frozen ones from the grocery store?

I bought a syringe, attached a piece of airline tubing to it, and then attached a piece of rigid airline tubing to that. It makes a decent target feeder and is amusing watching fish and inverts attacking the tip to get at the food.
