My African Dwarf frogs are not eating

I have had three African Dwarf frogs for almost a week. I've been feeding them fish flakes with a baster and at first my frogs really liked them, but now they aren't eating the fish flakes anymore. I have also tried pellets and sun-dried baby shrimp, but nothing seems to be working. I don't have any substrate so I leave some of the sunken fish flakes on the bottom. Could they be eating those when i'm not watching? Should I try something else? Maybe live brine shrimp? Thanks!

Try frozen bloodworms. Most of them love that stuff.

they are almost blind try feeding them with feeding tongs even though it will take a while to teach them that it means food though. I have also heard a feeding dish helps so their food is always in once place

I never see my frogs eating and I've had them for months. They just seem to really like their privacy I'm sure your guys are fine too.

Wow, thanks! that's reassuring... the past few days I haven't seen any food at the end of the day so I suppose that means they're eating. Thank you everyone for all your help, I sincerely appreciate it =D
