6 line wrasse feeding

I just picked up a 6 line wrasse. I was hopoing it would hunt some bristle for me. Anyway he does not seem interested in the flake food. I fed some dried brine and that he liked. Any other hints on some food? He seems to forage some, but I'm not sure what. All the other fish/shrimp/crabs/star likes the current food I have...This guy picky?

My 6 line is always picking stuff off the LR.
I feed Mysis Shrimp and he gobbles that up until his belly is nice and fat.

I believe most wrasse's are mild carnivores. mysis shrimp (frozen) is a good choice..mine sure loves it. he goes for bio blend pellets (small). I also feed frozen formula 1 and formula 2, which he also loves.
