Default Blue-Eyed Forktails Feeding?

SEems these guys a re super picky about what they eat, which at this point in time is only frozen brine shrimp. Anyone else have luck feeding these guys with other foods?

Try Daphnia, Artemia nauplii or micro worm.

It appears they prefer floating food items.

Seems to like cheap tetra flake, thats broken into smaller pieces. Eats frozen brine shrimp, and occasionally bloodworm however they are too big usually and he gives up after a few tries.
