In my personal experience, most bettas won't eat the Jungle Labs pellets even if they saturated in garlic. I've tried several times. You're much better off soaking his food in your own metro/garlic mix. The Jungle Labs pellets are mostly wheat germ. Fish in general, not just bettas, don't handle the wheat germ.
Is the cory acting all right aside from being stunted? Poor cory. At least cories are peaceful and he won't get picked on, like he would if he was a stunted guppy or something.
