<< I have several juviniles in a community setup with blacknose dace and
minnows. I see them take frozen blood worms and they constantly graze on
substrate and rocks and wood in the tank, but they never show full bellies
like the other fish and some are even looking hollow bellied. I've tried
introducing algae in various forms but they don't seem too interested.
Any clues on a food that will help them thrive? >>

I had one in the library aquarium. He lasted maybe two years. It is a well
planted community tank with lots of natural light (so algae). Food was flake
food and live daphnia during the warm months.
