White skirt (dyed)

I have two white skirts in my 10 gallon, and when feeding time comes.. they sure don't eat much. Right now I'm finishing off a can of wardley flakes.. what else can they eat?

I had black skirts awhile back and they loved frozen brine shrimp and frozen bloodworms. They also ate NLS pellets as well as flake.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Will they be safe for my other tetras as well? And how often can you feed brine shrimp and bloodworms?

Once or twice a week in place of regular feedings should be good. Both foods are favorites for just about all types of fish.
