Feeding and swapping food ???

I got 5 new betta yesterday 3 males(in different tanks) and 2 females they were all fed on frozen bloodworms in the petshop i brought them from and apparently they won't eat anything else is there any way i can get them onto the pellets as i want them 2 have a full healthy diet rather then just frozen bloodworms???

I have the tetrabetta pellets.

Just keep offering them the pellets and don't feed them anything else until they eat them; eventually they will get hungry and eat the pellets.
I know it can be hard and frustrating, but stay strong, don't give in, and they will eat them eventually ;)

Also soak the pellets in garlic juice, bettas ADORE it. It is like catnip and good for their immune system too.

Agreed with both of them ^. I've seen bettas that take 11+ days before they'll touch it. It's like humans....If when your young your parents only offer you peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches but you hate them, well after a while you're going to starve and eat it....then you get used to it and eat them anyway. Stay dtrong and don't give in! Good luck. :)
