Platy food

Hello everyone! I have 3 platys in a 10 gallon tank and I've had them for a few weeks now. They were all eating fine, and now I notice they arent eating as much food, and sort of taking it in their mouth and spitting it out. I have a cory cat also, and they love to nibble on his shrimp pellets that I give him. I feed my platys aqueon tropical fish flakes, (color enhancer and non color enhancer), omega one veggie flakes, and blood worms. I don't know if they're bored of them, but they don't seem interested in them as much. But they love the pellets! I was wondering if there is any other food I can try to see that they like. Do they sell pellets that I can feed for platys? How about a vegetable like a cucumber or something? They do eat the blood worms well, but I don't want to give them that every day. I give them blood worms 3 times a week.

You can try Hikari micro pellets. All of my fish love them including the platys.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

try "New life Spectrum Thera + A regular formula" their really small pellets and color enhancement. I use those and some flakes ("Prime Reef Flakes") and then occasionally Frozen brine shrimp. for all my fish, and they love it
