Crush flake food into a fine powder and they will eat that.

They will be teeny tiny, mine I feed a combination of shrimp pellets, fish flakes, and died baby shrimp. I stick it in a plastic bag and crush it with a rolling pin. It will work just fine of you want to use just crushed flakes, I just crushed up what I had at the moment and I've made the mixture like that since then
