Best frozen foods

I generally like feeding frozen foods to my adult haps, either weekly or monthly. So far I feed either cyclop-eeze, daphnia, baby brine shrimp (left overs from fry feeding), mysis shrimp, and Krill (just fed krill for the first time last week. They seem to love it. The problem is my Exochochromis anagenys male is a voracious pig and shoved at least 4 into his stomach and is super fat now, so I can only feed very lightly a few flakes now until he passes all of it through his body...).

What I was wondering, which of those is likely the healthiest, and are there any other healthy foods that they'd like?

Currently the only live food I feed is guppy fry I have in a 2.5gallon, but I was also considering setting up a 10 or 20 gallon Daphnia tank. Is daphnia a good live food to feed, and how healthy is it?

Also what I'd like to know is what frozen foods you guys feed.

I feed frozen blood worms and brine shrimp to my SA planted tanks, but never to my African tank (male peacock/hap + labs and p. acei.). Just paranoia, I guess. I feed NLS sinking pellets and Omega veggie flakes. The synos get NLS sinking wafers. Everyone likes the food and it's really all they need. My biggest problem, related to food, is not overfeeding the little buggers. A brief battle with bloat a few months ago pretty much cured me of that habit!
