He might need more than 3 days of fasting before he will try the pellet :P Bettas can be stubborn, especially if they are aware you have other food options available. Don't cave and give him any bloodworms until he swallows a pellet (spitting it out is cheating). You can also try soaking it in a bit of garlic before offering it. Bettas LOVE garlic.
