food for neon tetras, blue l-f danios and zebra danios

i have 3 blue l-f danios, 4 zebra danios, and 4 neon tetras. i usually feed them tetra color and freeze dried brine shrimp flakes, but 2 of my neons havent been eating as much, except for the occasional dropped flake. could i give them other food like pea hearts? need examples, and i will try anything to help my neons.

Maybe try something smaller, my tetras will not eat flakes or anything very big at all.

Try basic flakes. Color enhancing food may not have all of the nutrients needed. I believe that carotine is added to promote enhanced coloration. Too much brine shimp, and othr animal matter, may cause constipation. Be careful how much and how often you feed them this.
