TetraPro Crisp Issues

I wasn't sure which category to put this in but I just purchased TetraPro Tropical Crisps and my fish seemed like they didnt know what to do or that they couldn't eat it. I have lemon and diamond tetras, a platy, rasboras, dwarf rainbows, white clouds, etc. I typically feed flake but I needed more food and decided to try something different. Should I wait awhile to let them get used to it or is there something I can do to help them?

My fish/shrimp love the crisps. I usually crumple them up though. A little goes a long way with those. When I had mollies they would eat them whole and the amanos will take them but the CPDs/ember tetras/corys/RCS like them crumbled up.

When introducing new food sometimes they wont take to it right away. Heck Ive got a entire container of omega one community flake that no one likes.

My trick to get fish to eat new food is to skip a feeding. That usually does the trick. They'll eat when they're hungry.

Same goes for shrimp, which tend to be a bit more picky.
