Default Greedy Polypedates leucomystax

I have a group of Polypedates leucomystax, while common they are very fun frogs to own, often active during the day and has amazing food response. Truly ferocious, attacks anything that moves (which sometimes include my fingers wen I do maintenance.)

The problem is that the bigger one (who has already cannibalized two of her tank mates) steals most of the food I put in. The other ones do get some to so they aren't starving or anything but my fear is that the big one will eventually get big enough to eat the others obesity is another concern.

The obvious solution would be to catch the smaller ones and feed them separately, I'm just worried that they might not eat because of stress from being caught. But maybe I'm just worrying over nothing. The other frogs do look fine after all.

How would you guys tackle this situation?

neat frogs! Target feeding with rubber tipped tweezers or multiple feeding stations offering grubs could be a good way to insure everyone gets enough
