Can you handfeed them? If so, try mixing some bits of shrimp with softened pellets. Start with mostly shrimp and a little pellet. Then slowly change the proportion of pellet and shrimp so that they\'re eating more pellet than shrimp. It may take time, but you should be able to wean them away from the shrimp. Pellets are best as the staple, but supplement with other foods so that they have variety in their diet.
