Finicky Eater???

Well Nick Saban is from what I can tell just like his namesake Coach Saban (Rolllll Tidddeeeee Rolllll!!!!) he appears to only eat what he wants and what he wants seems to be bloodworms. I've tried floating pellets, spits them right out; flakes, checks them out and spits them out if he even bothers to try one; shrimp flakes same result. He will eat bloodworms though. Y'all have any other suggestions as to food? Bloodworms are the only food I've seen him eat in a week.

Well I would but the platys get nippy with everything in the tank if they go without food for what they seem to think is too long. The wife thinks it's funny that I'm yelling at fish about eating another fish's food.

Take out the betta when you feed them. Fast him for a few days then see if he'll eat them

So bloodworms every day aren't good?

No. You're only supposed to give them blood worms twice a week and only a few at a time.
