How to feed betta pellets to your shrimp.

My shrimp likes betta pellets. This particular product doesn't contain copper or stuff that can harm them so it is safe. The pellets are floating so I came up with this device to hold them at the bottom of the tank. It's made of a coffee straw and a glass bead. If anyone has better idea please share it with others.
P.S. PLEASE DON'T FEED YOUR SHRIMP WITH STUFF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH. I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS.

I feed tetra betta pellets to my snails. I toss them in and watch the snails try to catch them as the filter pushes the pellets around.
Maybe you could find a soft mesh, like what shower scrubbies are made of, that has holes small enough the pellets can't float out. Make a little drawstring bag where the drawstring is attached to heavy beads or a rock. Then the shrimp can climb on it and pick out pieces when the pellets get soft.

My roommate says I'll die by giant turtle.
