Bumblebee Goby feeding?...

I've got a pair in with my barbs (yes I salted, params are fine, no interspecies arguing going on) in a 33 gallon tank. Everyone's fine and dandy, active...Except, the barbs eat everything before the little ones have a chance. I've even hid bloodworms in spots they can't fit in to, but they've figured out how to swish their tails and swoosh the worms OUT... *facepalm*. Will I have to pull the gobies from the tank, or can someone help with some ingenuity? Is there something the barbs WON'T eat that the gobies can have?

I mean they've been getting tidbits and even readily eat frozen food squares, but only when they can get them some, and they won't hand feed like the barbs will...
