Fishes eating shrimp food

I feed my fishes flake food twice a day.
My RCS are fed tiny pellets every other day. Well, my RCS spend the whole day eating from the bottom, but those pellets are said (by LFS) to have special nutrients to help them molt.

My problem is that my fishes are voracious mollies and guppies!! As soon as they finish their floating food, they go directly to the bottom and start harassing my RCS to steal their food.
There is one guppy in special that spends the whole day biting every shrimps' "snout" she finds on the bottom just to check what they are eating (and steal it).

Do you guys have any trick to avoid fishes of stealing shrimp food?

Add a divider between the fish and shrimp
