    Mine likes Formula One made by Ocean Nutrition. He doesn't eat the whole cube, I make small flakes for him with a knife and feed him the small pieces of food and It works for me. He doesn't like mysis shrimp.

    It could take up to even a week for them to get used to their new home, so no worries! Also in general, frozen foods would be better for their diet instead of flakes or pellets.
