You should try feeding it pellets. We use to feed our sun coral brine shrimp and mysis, but to cut back on nutrients 6 months or so ago we tried NLS pellets and it loved them, so that's all we feed them now.
We use to feed our open brain 1/2 of a table shrimp (from the seafood counter at the grocery store)

I've been using the below coral pellet food for a while now.
Its really easy to use with little wasted food in the tank. As I don't feed pellets to the fish (only flake and frozen for them), they don't go nuts trying to steel food fomr the corals
My brains are able to take these pellets a little faster than frozen foods

I used to feed mine whole Mysis. I'd give one to each head. It got a bit difficult after a while since it had somewhere around 40 heads. lol
