I have a 20g long planted; feeding flake food to my 4 male Lyretail Guppies. I plan on more nano fish in the future, and want to expand their diet.

However, foods like frozen seem way too big for their mouths. Any tips on getting non-flake food small enough for nano fish?

Also, any other food suggestions?

20G long / Finnex Planted + / Marineland C-160 / Tunze Regulator / Fluval Bubble Counter / Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater / Koralia 240 / Rhinox Drop Checker

Frozen brine shrimp can get chopped up to suit their mouth size, frozen daphnia is an option as well. With any fish, live is the best so if you can get a starter culture of daphnia, blackworms, grindal worms or micro worms your guppies would definitely be able to take them!

I like the small size fluval bug bites for small fish. Ive used it in the past for my ruby and ember tetras.
