Exclamation Betta pellets

I read Dramas post just now about blood worms and I need advice.
When I first bought Rosen, he would eat pellets. After he had a treat of blood worms, he wouldn't touch the pellets or betta flakes. Even after a day of fasting he ate one pellet (you could deffinately tell he was mad) and left the other two alone. I do not want to continue feeding him blood worms but I dont want him to starve. You think almost two days of fasting might make him hungry enough to start eating pellets again? And NO MORE bloodworms! I just need suggestions & opions. My other bettas will only eat the pellets, so no problems there.
He's a chunk, so I dont think a couple days fasting wouldnt hurt him very much....hehe

I was feeding him a couple in the afternoons, and a couple pellets in the morning. Then I ran out of pellets for a day and he was fed only blood worms and since then he just doesnt have the taste for the pellets. Tomorrow is fasting day so Im going to try it again Tuesday and see if he will touch the pellets :( I just want him on a better and healthier diet than ONLY blood worms. haha

Well this is what I do for my bettas. Because you're only supposed to feed them blood worms twice a week or so.
I feed them 2-3 pellets every 12 hours. About 10:30 am & pm. Tuesday and Saturday morning I feed a few blood worms. Sunday morning I feed shrimp. And Sunday I fast them. Hope this helps.

I really need to make a little schedule for my fishies...it would probably help me stay better organized.
I may sneak in there right now and see if he will take a pellet before I tuck them all in to bed. LOL It's frustrating...he's definitely got character, so there's no telling what he will do.

Im pretty sure my family will think I'm crazy when I get a feeding schedule up for my fish...They already tell me NO more fish but I just want one more :) I mean, I'll be moving out asap so they wont be here TOO much longer. LoL Then I will only have to deal with the boyfriend.
