Yup, spinach leaves. I take them, lie them out 1 by 1 on a sheet and make sure they are dry, and freeze them like that so they don't clump together and it's easy to take 1 leave out of the freezer bag at a time, then put in some water and nuke for 2-3 minutes and tied to a piece of lava rock with a elastic.

Yup, spinach is a favorite that they get mixed in with the odd treat of frozen blood worms, algae wafer, Ebiken EI, Fluval Shrimp Pellets, a pinch of my blend of about 7 different fish foods now and again, repashy food, and whatever else I throw in there in addition to all the biofillm they get from my hamburg matten filter, sponge filter in the tank, almond leaves, moss and lavarocks.

I fed mine spinach and they didn't eat the whole thing (unsurprising, only 10 shrimp!) but they had torn off sections of of the top layer of the spinach leaf. Almost like a pleco had gotten hold of it. Assume that meant they liked it.

What they do not touch spinach, mine go nuts for it. A huge leaf gone in 2 hours in any one of my tanks. In my PFR tank gone in 15 min. Make sure you boil it until it starts to seperate and sinks.

Mine were like that until I learned to cook it right then it became a expected food. If I did not feed it I know I would get the evil eye every time I went in the room
