Freddy - my guy at work - has always been a chow hound - practically jumped out of the water to get the first pellet I fed him.
So when I got Sir Fins home I tossed some pellets in & he looked at me like - YUK!
It looked like he'd never seen a pellet. After a few more tries he figured out it was food.
He did the same thing w/ frozen blood worms
I was using tweezers & wiggling them around.
Finally I scrapped some off w/ my finger nail & put my finger in the tank & he came right up to it & ate them.
Feels neat having him eat off my finger
