One of my imports refuses to eat pellets. This is the only fish I've ever had this problem with. I've tried different brands like Omega and Hikari; he refuses to eat them. I've tried different sizes as well and he won't even put any in his mouth. He's been like this since I got him two weeks ago.
The only thing he'll eat are blood worms, and I know that's not a proper diet. I use frozen. I tried not feeding him the worms and only giving him pellets, but I was afraid he was going to starve to death because he refused to touch any of them so I went back to the frozen worms.
Could it be because his breeder didn't use pellets so he's unsure what they are?
What are some ways I can train him to accept pellets as food? He swims up to them, then turns away. He doesn't even mouth them at all. Yet attacks the blood worms like he's a tiger.
