Firefish and other fish not eating what food should I give them?

Hello, I have
1 Bicolor Blenny
2 clowns
And 1 Firefish
I just introduced the firefish a day ago I have some frozen cyclops to the tank and what would happen the firefish would intake it and then spit it out. Since I'm a n00b I don't know what else to feed the firefish. Is Mysis just as good as Cyclops? Click image for larger version

My firefish eats mysis shrimp and marine flake. He isn't that picky.

Edit: maybe being new to the tank is a factor. I typically don't expect fish to eat the first day in a new tank.

he could but it could be it don't appeal to him some fish can be finicky eaters
I have some fish that wont eat any frozen just flakes or mini pellets ,
just like some of my other fish if it don't move they wont eat it ,
every fish has it's own preference on foods just like me I like burgers but really don't flip over steak ,
