live brine shrimp

Fed live brine shrimp to my fish and the yellow clown gobies won't touch the stuff. I'm confused as to why.

They look at it. They eat frozen food and flakes fine. I fed them some flake while live shrimp was in the tank so they would get something. One of them accidently got a shrimp thinking it was a flake and spit it out and proceded to get a flake.

As prey, the brine shrimp may be too large for the goby. They have relatively small mouths. I suspect they would behave very differently if fed live BBS. Plus, it's more nutricious.
