If you go to a rocky place, you may be able to find little crustaceans clinging to the undersides of the rocks or hanging out in the seaweed. Good luck.

In the meantime, grab some of that lettuce macro that grows everywhere around there and stick it in the tank, it is loaded with little critters that may or may not get eaten but won't hurt to have in the tank.
