    I just put a pinch in the palm of one hand and crush/crumble it into tiny pieces with the fingers from my other hand.

    My chili rasboras really liked baby brine shrimp too. :)

    I used to crush pellets for my triops by putting pellets in a plastic bag and using a flat object to crumble it up.

    If it's flakes then I just pop a small quantity in the palm of my hand and crush them with my thumb.

    I usually just roll it around my thumb and forefinger with a bit of pressure.

    I’ve used two spoons with food between to grind hard pellets into bits.
