Copperband Feeding Question

I have a copperband that eats mysis shrimp like no tommorow. He tries to eat flakes but just spits them out. Any other food I can try feeding him so I am just not feeding him the mysis all the time?

mine eats mysis and brine and will pick and play with larger pieces of shrimp that I toss in the tank for the tangs and grouper.

Anything with cyclpo-eeze is a good bet. Mine loves it.

I only feed frozen. Blood worms and cyclopeeze always worked great for me.
