New Diet for Crystal Shrimp - suggestion

So. I've had my CRS for 5 months now, stable parameters, and they are finally starting to breed like crazy. I've been feeding Shirakura Ebi wafers to them, and they like it but don't go crazy over it. I'm almost out of food and would love to take any suggestions to what brand I should get next?

Thanks!

Here's a lame pic I snapped of them before shutting off the lights

How many shrimp do you have in how big of a tank? Its possible they just aren't very hungry.

i've got about 20, now breeding-adults, or more. Got 3-4 drops from mammas. Counted 40 something tiny babies scavenging around. I don't feed everyday, but just wanted to try something different. I've got a ton of samples from Han, of different shrimp foods, and they didnt seem to go crazy over any of them (?) hehe

Just wanted to see your oppinions.

Have you found that your shrimp love these foods that you listed?
