Question Spectrum is picky....

I have a picky eater! Spectrum will eat the first pellet then put the second in his mouth spit it out and repeat! But he GOBBLED a fd bloodworm like it was sweet mana from heaven! I cant make him eat fd bloodworms as a daily diet so how do i get him to eat hikari bio gold pellets? I know he is healthy becuase he is active and has a small bubblenest. HELP! ( the last smiley is a joke LOL)

Just keep offering the pellets and eventually he'll eat them.Or change brands.

I'm actually going through the same thing myself... Button was only eating the first pellet and then spitting the second out and playing with it which was kinda adorable but frustrating... anywho, like dramaqueen said, just keep offering the pellets and he might come around eventually (Button sort of did) or you can switch brands and see if that works...
