Default Feeding my African dwarf frogs

So I went ahead and purchased 2 African dwarf frogs and I am in fact having a bit of an issue feeding them. I purchased frozen blood worms for them . After placing the blood worms right in front of their face they did not seem to eat them, however, I actually saw them eating some flakes that sank to the bottom, which I hear is uncommon. The fish in my aquarium were quick to eat the worms before the frogs could get to them. Does anyone have any advice of an easier way to feed these little guys before my fish eat all their food. I heard maybe trying to feed them a couple hours after the lights are out when the fish are less active......? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

There is actual frog food that you can buy at petco... it sinks to the bottom too fast for the fish to get to it so you won't have a problem with that.

Turkey basters, believe it or not, can be used to put food directly in front of them easily.
