The sperulina Mitch mentioned was the kicker for my Yellow's (org bought for my Cray's & Shrimp). which you can either get pretty pricey for a few at the LFS OR you just go to your next best health food store and get a big bottle there with these tablets, that's what I always did and will do again for my shrimp now.
My Yellows also liked to play tackle & snack n cucumbers. Just offer a few times over & over and see if they start liking it (mine where always skiddish on anything new)
i have the freeze dried AKA dead blood worms. are those good?
