How do you target feed

I just bought some invertebrate target food and am wondering how to properly feed it to them. How do you guys do it?

Is a syringe sufficient? It is mostly my corals that I am feeding as my anemone does well on his own(with his clown friend to help)

a syringe with the needle removed would be fine for stuff like zooplankton and pytoplankton. I use a clean pipette, because I had a supply new ones from my fertilizer order (I keep planted FW tanks too)
