Found out why Sesshoumaru wouldn't eat.

The pellets were too big! D:
He'll only eat them if you crush them up!

But also, I found him to take to frozen blood worm quite easily. (what betta wouldn't, right?) But I was wondering if the frozen blood worms were more nutritious than the freeze dried ones?

Yeah frozen is far better than freeze dried. Freeze dried is really nothing but filler and has no nutritional value.
Though with the frozen you only want to few once a week or so, they are a good thing to break up their diet with.

Frozen is much healthier than freeze-dried.
Freeze-dried can also cause bloating, besides being less healthy. It is still a good treat, just don't feed very much at once! :)
Glad you found out why your betta wasn't eating though!

My little guy is so hooked on frozen bloodworms he will refuse pellets, which I break up too. I have to trick him with a toothpick and pretend the pellet piece is moving in the water.

Well Sesshoumaru has a bubble fountain, so there's a current to move the move around.

When I can, I feed frozen bloodworms 5/7 of the time (5 days a week). However, I add vita-chem to them so they have all the the vitamins that would be missing. I also feed Spectrum Small Fish Formula, which is very small and easy to eat. It is very convenient if I don't have time to feed bloodworms.
