Betta doesn't eat anything... but then he eats a shrinking shrimp pellet

Hey guys so my Giant betta ate an entire shrimp pellet lately he hasnt eaten normal fish food... he only eats frozen bloodworms... and refuses pellets( tetra and hikari) and then he sucks up the shrimp pellet whole when I try and feed the cories.. he is in a ten gallon, heated with platies and cories.

he doesnt look sick... hes just lounging now digesting his big meal... hes a picky eater lol and im kind of annoyed ... ive bought every food they sell lol...

Petco sells New Life Spectrum Betta if you have one nearby. You can also try finding seachem garlic guard and soaking the hikari in them for about 10 minutes before trying to feed.

thanks! I just bought the hikari tonight... so in a couple days I'm gonna try them again and hopefully he will see them before the platies gobble them up... he seems fine even tho he swallowed that thing whole lol
