Feeding algae wafers

I recently put 4 amonoes and 10 cherry shrimp in a 15 gallon heavily planted tank that's been running about 9 months, along with 10 male endlers.

I was amazed how quickly the shrimp at the algae that had been growing so well. I got some Hikari algae tablets. Any advice on how many and how often to feed? Is it ok to break up the pellets and scatter them around, rather that taking out the uneaten pieces after 2 hours?

I would start with 2-4 break em up n scatter them u will probably see the Amano take an entire piece and sit on a plant n eat it.

So that'd be 1 or 2 for just 4 Amano? I just got some shrimp for the first time and realized I know what to feed but not how much or often.

I put two in. Both the amanos and the cherries fed on the pellets, but one would have been plenty.
