Question why won't bettas eat off the bottom?

It seems like a lot of bettas just refuse to eat the food once it hits the bottom. Why is this? As some know, i have to pre-soak my the pellets for Peter and now it also looks like i will have to for my new girl =[ anyways, it takes some effort and time to do this and when Peter attacks the softened pellet from my finger tip and misses and it floats to the bottom, he won't eat it off the bottom and i have to soak a new one. boooo....A little while ago, Peter missed and as it was floating to the bottom, i actually pointed at it and he followed it down LOL, but once it hit the bottom, he just stared at it and then swam back up slapping his chops as to say "hey where is my grub?" haha

Some will eat off the bottom, and some won't. They're silly like that!

Tango learned to eat off the floor from the corys. I guess some of them need a fish teacher vs. a human teacher. :)

I love the looks that they give me if the pellets sink. They give me a pouty look and it seems like they're saying "Um, I'm not picking that up."lol :P
