Some fish just don't seem to like particular foods... I'm not sure why, you just have to keep looking around until you find come foods that they do like.
If they don't like bloodworms, try brineshrimp, you can also get blackworms, and many other frozen foods for them. It is good obviously to have a varied diet, and will keep their colours vibrant and keep them looking healthy. A little veg from time to time is also good (try carrot or cucumber, and weigh it down)
It's basically like you having bread every day if they are only fed flake food, so, just like us, they will benefit from a more varied diet. :D

If you are looking for something new to feed your fish, add color, and contribute to good health, you could try frozen formula 1 cubes. Again, thaw them in a cup until warmed all the way through. If the fish eat frozen parts not already thawed, it will hurt them. Once thawed, crumble a cube into the tank.
Sometimes fish can be picky and not want to eat what we offer them. If you stop feeding any other food, give them a couple of days without anything, then feed them with the food you are trying (like the brine or formula), they will tend to eat it because they're hungry. Once they have eaten it, they learn to accept it as another food source.
The healthiest way to feed your fish is to alternate foods, one food one day, another food the next day, and so on.

It is not just for saltwater fish. I use it all the time, freshwater AND saltwater. It's a healthy food for both, so long as you don't over feed them, because it will pollute the tank quickly if it's not eaten right away. Oscars find this a good supplement, and it brings out the colors in them, and any other fishes that are omnivorous in nature. Most tetras, mollys, swordtails, barbs, angels, central and south american cichlids, loaches, corys... the list goes on for the number of species that can and will eat it, and it's good for them. The only fish I wouldn't give the Formula 1 to are vegetarian fish, and in their case, I simply go to Formula 2 because it contains more plant matter, but not much. There IS a difference between the different forms of Formula food, and I find the flake and pellet versions to be useless, as most fish won't eat them.
